200 square-metres on Via Santo Spirito in Milan now belongs to the exclusive Ballin footwear brand. Their sensual summer 2012 range draws inspiration from style icons, Grace Kelly and Brigitte Bardot, with special detailing, materials and striking colours. I adore the ‘Evelyn‘ sandal which incorporates floral fabric that ties around the ankle while I could certainly twist and turn in the strappy ‘Tango‘ Pair. The slim heel of this two-toned beige and blue sandal is fun and contemporary with a kiss of sweetness in the form of a bow.
Here’s a sneak peek at the Winter 2012/13 collection which has been infused with the passionate nuances of Latino culture to stir strong emotions through bold colours and styles. I lurrrve this crimson lace-up bootie supported by a thick platform and slim heel as well as this gorgeous black pump with a sturdy geometric heel. It may be premature to start compiling my winter shopping list, but if Ballin’s new stock is out later this month, I have to get my hands on the lace-up bootie as soon as I touch down in Milan. Can’t wait!!
