The basic gladiator sandal was interpreted in new and innovative ways this season. Altuzarra created a fierce pair of gladiator heels while Alexander Wang created a minimalistic version of the shoe.
The next trend is see-through detailing. It started with Christian Louboutin and now you can see it on the campaign ads for Valentino and Chanel.
Many designers are also creating a transparent Lucite heel. Lucite is a clear plastic and this spring you will see it everywhere from shoes to jewelry and purses. I personally love a shoe with a clear lucite heel – It look as though you are walking on air.
