Georgina Goodman Stylist shoe sketch

The Wedge by Georgina Goodman

“The inspiration for this shoe was a Tony Cragg sculpture. Wedges of all shapes and forms are important for this season and will continue to be next summer. This heel height is becoming more desirable - it’s sexy comfort!” - Georgina Goodman

The Platform by Jimmy Choo

“For Spring Summer 2011 I wanted to keep the shoe feminine but also give it modern edge, hence introducing big volume on the platform. For Niagra the cobalt blue is bang on trend for the season too." - Jimmy Choo

The Cage by Manolo Blahnik

“I love the idea of a foot being trapped by plants. In this particular shoe I was inspired by a garden with flowers and vegetables. The details on this shoe are reminiscent of a cauliflower mixed with a carnivorous plant.” - Manolo Blahnik

The Block Heel by Nicholas Kirkwood

“I created this shoe in collaboration with Peter Pilotto and the vivid works of Donald Judd and Daniel Buren inspired it. Block heels are a strong, bold look for summer – they’re a fresh, clean, modern look and feel very now.” - Nicholas Kirkwood

The Simple Sandal by Rupert Sanderson

“With all my designs I try and do the most with the least. Isis is the perfect summation of "less is more" – a graphic shape set on a simple strap sandal. This season has a pared down feel to it which is why this style is so appropriate now.” - Rupert Sanderson

The Pointed Toe by Sergio Rossi

"The pump represents the essence of Sergio Rossi footwear expertise and defines the perfect silhouette: for the Chichi the extreme lightness of the heel accentuates its delicacy." - Sergio Rossi
