how to wear clear perspex heels

3 ways to wear clear perspex heels

Clear perspex heels are in for fall 2020 fashion. You may remember the craze for clear lucite heels back in 2018. This year the artificial transparency has moved from block heels to feminine sandals with perspex design elements. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | all clear perspex heels c/o:EGO OFFICIAL What is perspex Perspex is a form of acrylic that can be formed into sheets that are flexible enough to use as a fashion material.

While it’s hard to imagine plexiglass being used for shoe material, perspex is actually comfortable enough. It has the texture of a heavy-duty vinyl or synthetic leather. Being in the acrylic family, perspex does not breath.

The good news is, when …

living the life you love

Lugano might just be the most perfect destination. Each year, I have the privilege of traveling to this place to work in our studio. Sometimes, we even get to work outside of the studio. By 5 o’clock, we freed ourselves from the work table littered with magazine clippings. We had been collectively researching the top fashion trends for fall. photography:GAIA GRIGOLETTO | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III |   August and September in Lugano are absolutely beautiful. The destination – Lake Lugano, just a few blocks away from our working studio. The purpose – shooting lifestyle edits for our luxury footwear brand, Naked Feet.

I referenced Google, friends and travel bloggers for advise on a London packing list before the trip, and decided to make this list of my own based on personal experience on multiple trips to the city. London is a place of beautiful architecture, bustling culture and of course, the prestigious royal family. Rolling green hills, old world architecture, and refined country style was my first experience of London, spending most of the time on the countryside visiting SOHO farmhouse in a dreamy, storybook setting. My most recent travels took me back to the city, staying in and around the main city center of London.
