Shoes with high rates of sensuality that leave the instep uncovered, as if they were evening dresses with a plunging neckline.
This is the mood of the Fall Winter 2013/2014 shoes collection by Alberto Moretti, who enhances the silhouettes of the feet by putting them on high stiletto heels, with Rihanna’s words engraved in the sole: “Shine bright … like a diamond in the sky.”
As for every collection presentation during the Milan Fashion Week, the charming Alberto Moretti entertains his guests in the showroom, explaining the inspirations and showing the main models of the season:
the sandal covered with red fur on the outside and purple sheepskin in the inside;
leo printed court shoes with a black silk bow wrapping the tip;
the feminine version of the classic Alberto Moretti velvet loafers,
adorned with a jeweled brooch of Swarovski crystals and rubies;
to be worn just upon the court shoes, exposing the instep.
The materials variety reveals the interest of the designer in details and special manufactures: elegant reptile leather colored in the shades of silver with turquoise reflections on the scales; astrakhan fur applique; classic suede models, and finally, satin bows recalling the baby-dolls of the most luxurious lingerie.
They are shoes designed for self confident women who seduce and bewitch their preys without even talk. Actually, this is the true art of seduction, isn’t it? Every age has its technique and its cult piece: Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries have made the fortune of the fans; in the roaring 20s there were the cigarettes, which expressed a sense of power and freedom; in the 40s and 50s the exuberant hourglass silhouettes; in the 60s, the miniskirt; but from the late 90s, just one object has earned the title of “weapon of seduction”, the high-heeled shoe … and Alberto Moretti knows how to do it.
