On Our Radar: Sarah Flint


Sarah Flint
Footwear designer Sarah Flint may very well be the only 25-year old who can offer this sort of reveal: “at our factory in Vigevano, Italy, they produce Manolo Blahnik, Oscar de la Renta, and Sarah Flint…” Then, she takes a deep breath.

Flint–who launched her eponymous line for Fall ’13 following an education at FIT, an internship at Proenza Schouler, and a technical program at Milan’s Ars Sutoria–is no doubt in good (albeit understandably daunting) company. She wrangled the factory connection through an ex-teacher who once worked as a patternmaker for Blahnik. The old masters certainly rub off on the youngster, too; her shoes are decidedly grown-up and, for the most part, gimmick-free, informed by “the idea of returning to where a design’s basis is the integrity and shape of its materials, rather than the big buckle or the all-over studs.” That focus on form and material is most evident in her charming origami-inspired styles, which feature leather fold-overs along the tips of slippers and peep-toes alike.

Flint also has another big name in her orbit: Heidi Klum. After the designer gifted Klum a pair of booties, the model came back and ordered two more–one in a color not yet in production. “Of course, we made them,” says Flint.

Starting at $545, Sarah Flint is available online at, and at Edon Manor in New York City.

Hunting For Heidi


“Where is Heidi?” That was the big question everyone was asking last night at the Dream Downtown’s rooftop nightclub Ph-D, where Heidi Klum was hosting her second Halloween bash of the season. While guests including Jessica White, Russell Simmons, Darren Aronofsky, and Doutzen Kroes stood around and admired the slew of impressive costumes, they were all looking for one in particular: the hairy gorilla costume Klum leaked to the press last week.

“Heidi isn’t here yet!” Natasha Bedingfield told as she danced at a table with Fergie. Klum, according to a PR representative, was having “wardrobe malfunctions” and did not make it to the party until well after midnight. Bedingfield, on the other hand, decided to keep her getup simple: “I just threw this together and came to the party!” Maybe it was the wardrobe, or maybe it was just Halloween exhaustion—this year, the holiday’s been going on for four straight days in New York.
