Nothing calls for twinkle toes quite like the holiday season which is why we’re psyched about the launch of Chelsea Paris in the US, exclusively at Barneys. Designed in London and handmade in Italy, this sparkly resort collection has just the right blend of high fashion and luxe details to be on our radar right now. “We were drawn to the feminine sensibility of Chelsea Paris shoes that have a youthful attitude,” Barneys Fashion Director Tomoko Ogura told The Zoe Report of their decision to carry the line. “Her combinations of textures like polka dotted pony and snakeskin are playful yet modern,” she continued—and we couldn’t agree more!
Inspired by her own African heritage, the art deco era of the 1920s and Geisha women, designer Theresa Ebagua looked to color and texture to create a line uniquely compelling. “The result of this combination is a collection close to my heart, a balance of femininity, modernity and heritage,” Ebagua told us. The rich red pumps are the perfect pop of color with a serious heel that means business. And the standout metallic leather lace-ups are equally stunning in a rose gold hue that’ll outfit you for every holiday fete, a warm-weather getaway and all the way through to summer. From pony-haired flat sandals to a stacked heel with contrasting texture, designer Chelsea Paris is already steps ahead of the rest in its stateside debut.
