So In Lurve With Gap’s New Pierre Hardy Wedges

Oh, if only we had $200 for shoes we don’t need. Gap‘s latest collaboration with Pierre Hardy brings us these fierce black suede peep-toe wedges trimmed with leather. The latest Gap/Pierre Hardy collab is just one of many the store has put out lately, including Vena Cava, Stella McCartney, Keds and the (alleged) Valentino collab yet to come. Retail price on these bad boys, $195, is a tad high even for a high/low collaboration, but they’re versatile enough in the fall and winter months to make it worth it. I’d wear these with black tights and a brightly colored dress. And you? [Style.com] Keep reading »

The Good And Bad Of Designer iPhone Cases

Shelling out a bit for a nice iPhone case is a legitimate splurge—that’s something you see everyday and presumably your phone is something you want to take good care of. Of course, when you decide to spend, say, more than $50 on one, we’d expect it to be extremely cute. Pierre Hardy gets an A+ for this unique trompe l’oeil cube design, something we’ve never seen before on an iPhone case. Regretfully, we’re completely puzzled by Sonia Rykiel‘s wares—these velour pouches bedazzled with the words “phone bag” or “ibag.” Is it just us, or do they look a bit like mall trash couture?

Pierre Hardy For Gap: Is The Third Time The Charm?

When the first pair of Pierre Hardy shoes for Gap launched, I rushed to the store, assuming that I’d be in love and willing to part with almost $100 for said designer shoes. But I left Gap that day sans new shoes, dejected and disappointed at the collection. Then, editors obsessed over the fur-lined boots for winter, and I got excited yet again, but just like Erin, was completely let down by their look in reality. Now the shoe master has created another collection, and with this, I’ve finally given up. Three strikes and this collaboration is out for me. For summer 2010, Pierre Hardy designed three wedge styles and one flat denim gladiator pair, and here’s a first look at three of the four. From what I can see (and I hate to say it), the leather on the first pair looks too plastic-y to be worth the money, and the second is just plain boring. If I had to choose, the third could be a good option, but again, that price tag is too hefty. Hopefully the gladiator flats will bring some favorable light to the collection. If unlike me, you’re loving these shoes, head to Gap on May 4, when they will be available for $98. [Actually, gotta say I am kinda feeling them this time!

Pierre Hardy For Gap Shoes Do Not Make Us “Audibly Gasp”

Our friends over at Refinery 29 usually have pretty impeccable taste, but this headline, “New Pierre Hardy for Gap Shoes Send Us Into Cardiac Arrest, Almost,” gave us pause. When Amelia sent me the link, I was practically salivating: This shiz is gonna be AH-MAY-ZING! (I had plenty of time to anticipate this due to an unusually slow internet connection this afternoon, but I digress…) The post opened and can we just say, UN-DER-WHELMED? Yikes! While I’m glad that the Refinery editors are loving this moment so much, we’re not feeling the same way on this end. In fact, these shoes are taking us back to late ’90s prom (those crappy-looking heels!), and the boots are waaay too Jenny from the Block, like in a really bad way, before J.Lo’s whole style evolution. Plus, the combination of sweaty-looking, fold-over wool and outrageously high platforms will make you look that much sillier when it’s snowy out and you topple over in these heinosities. I rarely rip collabs (nothing good to say, don’t say it), but I can’t not speak up here. Looks like yet another case of designers cashing their big checks and dropping the ball on producing something we’d actually like to wear. Anyone? Am I taking crazy pills here or are these major no bueno? [Refinery 29]
