RAW Shoes — One day I was checking out the beauty section of WWD and seen an article about Gwen Stefani being the new face of Lâ€™Oreal Paris. Looking at Gwen made me remember that I had to feature her 2011 Spring Collection so I decided to get in contact with her new footwear rep, Alexandra Palermo. According to Ms. Palermo; one of the influences for the Spring Collection was the Early 80s. This time period is represented by the tonal material blocking of the Kai & Kaimi styles and the activewear influence of the Kapono and Kandis heels. Another influence came as result of Gwenâ€™s desire to showcase different forms of movement through the serpentine form of woven leather, fluid forms of embroidery & patchwork and the light reflective qualities of pailletes. L.A.M.B always produces aggressive silhouettes with eye-catching materials and this season is no exception.
