LeLutka Steps It Up

Happily ready to follow up my previous teaser post with a closer look at the new footwear from LeLutka. Amazingly enough, this premier shoe release consists of two distinct style options which are credited to two very talented women. Both Thora Charron and Minnu Palen have contributed footwear to the new Spring line, a collection of shoes that perfectly compliments the rest of the LeLutka collection, but also stands alone in style and texture as a great footwear option for lovers of flats and platform pumps alike.

Thora Charron is responsible for the Korina flats, a sweet little flat that is available in 3 distinct textures; Fabric with attractive sculpted bows, Checked with a very nice subtle pattern & Leather which adds a touch of sparkle with a row of large rhinestones across the toe. The only down side is trying to decide which color and which style you like the best, if you are a lover of flats then you might want them all.

Minnu Palen continues to challenge her skills as a designer, it seems that LeLutka (formerly MMS), has given her the opportunity to explore beyond men's and women's skins, and branch out into hair, clothing, and now shoes. Her Shanon pumps have a stylish platform style base, tall stiletto heel and come in some really sophisticated shades. The pumps have a reptile skin texture and come in soft pastels and vivid brights, and a very special diamond variation that has rhinestone details on the back of the heel. I am a big fan of the added touch of color around the shoe opening, really nice detail.

A visit to the newly re-opened LeLutka would not be complete without a closer look at the shoes.
