Alice + Olivia Launches Shoe Line

New footwear collection lunches for spring

Alice + Olivia, the New York based label favoured for separates with a feminine twist, launched their first shoe collection last week in partnership with ShopBop. Remaining true to their retro femme mantra, the collection delivers pin-up platform pumps, soaring wedges and sequined ballet flats. Colours range from jewel-tones to creamy neutrals, with a smattering of patterns – think au courant animal and polka dots.

To introduce the line of sassy shoes, designer Stacey Bendet released a 50s-inspired viral video, directed by indie virtuoso Bridget Palardy.

This spring, pair the beige Lila patent platforms ($295) with a lovely pleated midi skirt, crisp tee and colourblock tote.  Like most great outfits, it all starts with the shoes.–Nina Mourin
