Robert Clergerie for Opening Ceremony

By Trisha Marie

It’s beauties like these that cause me to weep a little at the fact that I don’t have a Marry Poppin’s magically endless bag of cash. Robert Clergerie proves again just how elegant and sassy French designers can be in his Spring shoe collection for Opening Ceremony. My favorite style of the collection is the Saxo Leather Bootie. This sleek shoe with its elegant wooden heel, corset lacing and leather body is the stuff dreams are made of (at least mine, anyway). If only I could slip my brittle ankles into these striking booties and prance around the city, running up and down subway platforms while legions of shoe fans alike drool over my killer set of kicks…

Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she? Somebody snag these and make me jealous.

You can check out the rest of the collection at Opening Ceremony.

N.B. The Manolo has asked his friend Trisha Marie to help him from time to time.

    Nothing personal to Trisha Marie, but I read this blog for your writing, Manolo.

    These are just too much for me. That heel looks like he bought some wood from Homedepot and fashioned a heel out of it.

    Now that is what I call a unique looking boot!

    Really? They’re just so clunky and, well, unattractive. Ugly, even. Sorry.

    For a peep toe boot, this is about the only one I’ve ever seen that I’ve liked. Generally, the idea of covering the entire foot in yards of leather and leaving the toes free is a kind of design schizophrenia to me (my ankles and heels are freezing, but my toes are on fire!). But this is more like a boot with cutouts. And generally I love the way Clergerie uses natural materials like wood to make the shoe into a kind of subtle sculpture. When you put them on, the don’t feel like they look–they are comfortable and easy to wear, well designed to move with your foot.
