“The first day of NYFW can feel like the first day back at school—in a good way. I love seeing my fashion friends and having that mini-reunion feeling, but the best part is discovering new design talents. Here, I’ve paired a dress from one of New York’s brightest design duos Proenza Schouler with a new shoe collection that’s exclusive to Barneys, Alchimia di Ballin.”
Don't get us wrong, we love the comfort of sneakers, but it's time for a new footwear style to take over our shoe closet. For 2017, designers are proposing sky-high platforms, like Proenza Schouler's spotted sandals and Gucci's lofty loafers embellished with studs.
