Edgardo Osorio, the designer behind the new shoe collection Aquazzura, knows the luxury market. He’s spent ten years working with Salvatore Ferragamo, René Caovilla, and Roberto Cavalli, where most recently he’s been directing all of the label’s shoes, on and off the runway. But he also knows that not everyone can manage the luxury price point and that the market sorely needs options between the mass and the luxe. The Colombian-born, Florence-based designer, who was raised between Miami and London, aims to fill the gap. His shoes come in cashmere suede and baby calf, tricked out with anklet-chain details and adjustable-strap closures for a perfect fit, but top out at around $450 a pair. No wonder Barneys has already expressed interest.
Our Fall Accessory Report, of course. For our biannual guide, senior market editor Marina Larroude picked the trends of the season, from the envelope clutch to the new loafer to anything and everything with a sprinkling of feathers and fur. Her complete picks are live here. And if that’s not enough bags, shoes, and jewelry for the accessory obsessives out there, you can glut yourself on the Fall ’11 Accessories Index, our comprehensive guide to almost 5,000 (!) of the seasons’ best. Happy browsing.

The look in Burlesque may be all rhinestones, all the time—thanks to a little help from Swarovski, of course—but the look at Burlesque‘s London premiere was a hint more demure. Cher may have gone all-out for the London carpet with a bright orange wig and lacy, black Julien MacDonald, but co-star Kristen Bell played a more ladylike card: this sweet, back-pleated, floral-print dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort ’11 collection. With stick-straight hair and satin Ferragamo pumps, Bell lets the print do the work. We’d say the shift is a little short for January temperatures—it’s been hovering around 30 degrees Fahrenheit in London—but she’s putting on a brave face. What do you think of her blossoming look: yea, nay, or eh?
Brilliant color has been one of the major runway stories of Spring ’11 so far, and not only in apparel. Accessories are turning up in vivid shades, too. In particular, we’ve noticed a preference for green at the Milan shows to date, ranging from a dark teal all the way to apple. We’ve arranged them across the spectrum here, with bags from (left to right) Salvatore Ferragamo, Fendi, Prada, Jil Sander, and Bottega Veneta, above. But to really appreciate them, you need to click the image above for a larger version—in living color, as it were.
