Robert Clergerie Fall/Winter 2016/17
Shoes that will take you to new heights
We’ve talked about how a Robert Clergerie carries you. And quite literally, if you
wear one of the brand’s iconic flatforms (the Frazzia), you’ll be well over 2.5
inches above the ground. Speaking of which, Robert Clergerie is now back with a
new collection for Fall/Winter 2016/17.
You need only a brief look back at history
to tell you how much of a trendsetter the Robert Clergerie brand is. The
eponymous designer is, of course, one of the most influential shoe designers of
his time. And now with cutting-edge designer Roland Mouret as creative director
– a role he has held since 2012, Robert Clergerie shows no signs of toning down
its trend-setting ways.
If you know Robert Clergerie, you would
know that innovative heels are a huge part of the brand’s identity. This season
the Clergerie heel gets an upgrade and we’re loving it.
Even with the most basic pump silhouette,
the infusion of a slight architectural slant – as seen in the Quoli pump, or
even a flatter heel – as seen in the Aro pump, can do wonders to make a simple
pump that much more special. A special construction, the Robert Clergerie team
calls it. Or as Robert Clergerie himself once said, “the stronger the idea, the
simpler the design.” Simply put, it’s simple and chic.
This collection also sees the iconic Dylan
wedge heel getting quite a bit of prestige in the form of the Tessy pump and
the Daisy sandal. Part wedge, part block heel, we call it. An intrigue
exclusive only to Robert Clergerie. A fascination to those who adore
creativity. And we all do.
