Yesterday I spent a glamorous afternoon sipping champagne, eating chocolate covered strawberries and trying on shoes- every girl’s dream! The event at Saks Fifth Avenue gave me an exclusive first peek preview of the pre-fall collection from B by Brian Atwood before it actually hits stores.
For those of you not familiar with the label, designer Brian Atwood has held such prestigious positions as Head Designer for Versace (the first American ever hired by the great Italian Designer) and Creative Director for Bally before beginning his own line.
In 2001, he debuted the very first Brian Atwood collection. A mix of come-hither heels and magnetic style made his freshman collection immediately successful. Atwood gained notoriety not only for his exceptionally crafted footwear but also for his inventive manner of presenting them, including a memorable peep-show locale and once using back-bending contortionists as shoe models.
In Fall 2011, Atwood launched his contemporary footwear collection B Brian Atwood. “The contemporary line is A mix of Upper East Side Poshness, Downtown cool, along with a Parisian sophistication; Inspired by the globe trotting fashionista. Each design incorporates sexy and aggressive silhouettes.”
The pre-fall collection encompasses everything Atwood is known for, sky-scraping heels, intricate detailing, hand placed European crystals and glamorous embellishments.
For me what makes this collection stand out from the rest is the fastidious attention to detailing in the heels and soles of the shoes from metal studs, to metallic fabrics, animal textures and candy like glitters that will make everyone stand up and take notice you as you walk away!
The B by Brian Atwood Pre-Fall collection will be available at Saks Fifth Avenue stores mid April.
This week one lucky winner will received and HUGE BOUNTIFUL Gift Basket from Saks Fifth Avenue’s Cosmetics department with goodies from brand such as Kiehl’s, Carolina Herrera Perfume, Bobbi Brown and Sumita PLUS much much more!
