“I am shoe-obsessed and had to edit down to a style per decade,” says Decades‘ Cameron Silver of his new collaboration with the Canadian brand Modern Vintage. That’s a lot to ask of a guy who curates an unparalleled collection of designer clothing and accessories, dating back to the twenties, for a living. “This was the Sophie’s Choice of shoe designing,” he adds.
He narrowed it down to four decades—the fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties—and used each era’s iconic shoes as a reference point for his four styles ($250 to $300). Silver’s favorite footwear era? “I guess the 1960′s, since there’s so much variety,” he tells Style.com in between Oscar fittings. For the Modern Vintage collection, he did an homage to sixties Pucci with his T-strap, peep-toe pump. There’s also a pointed-toe pump with a curved heel (popularized by Roger Vivier) to represent the fifties, a disco-inspired cork platform for the seventies, and a waved wedge for the eighties. Decades for Modern Vintage will be available at Gilt.com on March 1.
Last year, young designer Fabiola Arias’ entrance-making dresses snagged her a coveted Fashion Group International Rising Star Award, and she has continued to pick up steam ever since, landing her collection in numerous Neiman Marcus Couture salons and garnering attention from Chicago’s Ikram Goldman.
This season, the Cuban-born Parsons grad made the next natural step in a budding design career, unveiling her latest collection at the Hotel Americano with her first formal fashion show. “I was thinking about winged creatures and my signature style of rich colors and texture manipulation. I just wanted the dresses to look like birds,” she said of the cocktail dresses and gowns, embellished with meticulously feathered chiffon in rich ombré jewel tones. Arias kept the focus on her experiments with fabric, such as a distressed emerald brocade or nude organza scattered with delicate rosettes. Additional drama appeared via headpieces crafted by her mother, a costume designer, and furthered the avian theme with wild fans of exotic feathers. Such confident peacocking appeals to Arias’ ideal customer, “a woman who wants to look like nobody else. She wants to be unique, and is a vibrant and luminous person wearing the most fabulous gowns.”

Katie Holmes’ third campaign for H.Stern is out and she’s looking smoldering. The actress stripped down for the jewelry ads, so the images are mostly just sun-kissed skin and sparkling jewels. [Telegraph]

There comes a point when you (and I) can’t bear to wear 5- or 6-inch heels for even a minute longer—even if they are wedges. For that point, Neiman Marcus has teamed up with Keds, the classic sneaker label, on a pair of leopard-fur kicks that balance comfort with a bit of style. They’ll be available at Neiman Marcus stores on August 10. With New York fashion week around the corner, they’re an affordable ($100) investment—perfect to slip on for the trek home after a long day of dashing between Lincoln Center and Milk Studios.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana hosted a party in Milan for Justin Bieber. While Dolce admits that “it might be slightly premature to talk about him as a style icon,” he’s definitely dressing the Dolce & Gabbana part at the moment (left)—just us, or do you see a slight resemblance here?
