Call Me Courtisane

They teased. They begged us to come see what the fuss was about. When the time came, it was clear; there were shoes, there is collaboration, and something new has been born. Courtisane, a name that suggests the role of the beguiling and worldly women who were more than just high class ladies of the evening, they were skilled artisans and wearers of the most avante-garde fashion, sees the joining together of Enktan Gully of Enkythings and LeeZu Baxter of LBD.

LeeZu is known for her fantastic use of color and texture, really unique style and almost experimental designs, though very wearable. Enktan is a master of construction and masterful footwear that appeals to the discerning shopper who seeks quality and beautiful shape. Together they have created a line, at this point 4 styles, that combine luscious color, great looking textiles and details and most importantly wearable high fashion footwear.

Arriving at the store yesterday I was greeted by a flock of beautiful lingerie clad models, with feathered headdresses and fans, they danced and swung flirtatiously on high wires, the entire event was very entertaining, and I left with some nice looking shoes, and a set of the lingerie LeeZu will be releasing very soon. I will be reviewing the shoes, boots and booties more closely over the next few days. But if you are curious, please go take a look at the new collection from Courtisane, today.
