Dazzling Toe Shoes Dance for Clover Canyon’s “Winter Palace” Collection

They had us at bedazzled toe shoes. Clover Canyon’s autumn/winter 2013 presentation at the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week was a rich collection inspired by Russian culture.

Entitled “Winter Palace,” the collection was designed by Los Angeles-based Rozae Nichols and featured riveting, kaleidoscopic prints and, our favorite, glittering shoes.

With fur-trimmed jackets and mini dresses covered in Hermitage-inspired swirls and patterns, the danger and romance of Russian novels like Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina or Akunin’s Special Assignments come to life in — couture.

Ballet flats have had their share of stylistic renditions from snake-embossed leather to crazy prints, but having them this bedazzled is quite refreshing.

We say it can be done and that there is a place for such a pair of shoes for our everyday wardrobe, but I guess that remains to be seen until a designer or a brand takes on the challenge of making it mainstream.

Meanwhile, we content ourselves to the closest we can get of this Russian-inspired collection with Chloé’s blush leather ballet flats and Nicholas Kirkwood’s Swarovski-encrusted pumps available at Net-a-Porter.
