Spring is in the air- or at least in the shoes even if it’s still cold as heck outside!
Last week I hosted a Spring Shoe-tacular event at Donald Pliner in the Forum Shops at Caesars where we listened to some cool tunes from DJ Miss Joy, sipped on delish margaritas from Mesa Grill, got glammed up by NARS and of course had a first hand look at the Donald Pliner Spring 2018 Collection.
The Spring 2018 Donald Pliner Collection was inspired by the desert town of Marfa, Texas known for its modern art installments, art galleries, desert landscape and starry nights (if you’ve never been to Marfa it’s truly a must-see).
The collection plays with the juxtaposition of nature and stark modernity. Wood combines with lucite, whimsy with minimalist design. It’s a study of contrasts through elements which draw on Marfa’s vibrant modern art scene as well as it’s barren desert landscape.
The combination of raw materials, reflective surfaces and artisenal touches evoke the spirit of Marfa in this fantastic Spring Collection.
At the event I invited guests to “spot the trend” and create an Instagram story of their favorite examples of the three hottest Spring 2018 shoe trends, Lavender, Baja and Glitter & Glitz.
Lavender is THE color for Spring 2018. You will spot in everything from ready to wear to handbags and of course shoes! It pairs perfectly with denim and a red lip. This shade will be stealing the number one color spot from millennial pink this season.
Slides are hot again this season and so is anything with an easy vacay style silhouette. Think summer days in Baja California, ankle wraps, colorful accents, raffia, tropical prints and an easy silhouette.
GLITTER and GLITZ
If it’s got glitter, a lucite heel or it’s made of crystal clear plastic then you are stepping in the right direction this season.
You can SHOP the complete collection at Donald Pliner at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace or if your not in Vegas at DonaldPliner.com
