“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.
It’s hard to top last night’s Lady Gaga beach performance, but the starlets at Cannes today are aiming to try. The film to see is Sleeping Beauty, starring young Emily Browning (who picked Valentino for its evening, in-competition debut).
Our favorite looks from the premiere? First place to Mia Wasikowska, who chose a sinuous, floor-length Roland Mouret gown in red-carpet red. She’s got the youth vote for sure. But she’s also got stiff competition from the 73-year-old Jane Fonda, who went with an unforgiving, inset-paneled gown by Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci—and pulled it off beautifully. Inès de la Fressange, too, proved you don’t have to be a teen to strut your stuff. The Roger Vivier brand ambassador stunned in black Carven—customized for her by designer Guillaume Henry—and a killer pair of Riviera-ready Vivier flats.
