Romantic and feminine: that’s Alberta Ferretti’s mantra, and the retro-inspired shoes from her eponymous label are no exception. Launched in 1974 and debuting on the runway in Milan in 1981, the Italian designer has said of her career in fashion: “I was born into it, maybe even born with it in my blood.” Famed for dressing leading ladies on the red carpet, her figure-flattering gowns always have the stylists fawning come award season. Perfect with such pieces and everything in between, the designer’s pointed pumps, stiletto heels and on-trend mules provide the finishing touch to any ensemble. Playful platform sandals mix comfort and style to perfection, keeping you on the dancefloor all evening, while mixed-media flats make a statement addition to a simple daytime look. And, for the ultimate in vintage cool, show off the designer’s signature crystal-buckled court shoes with a midi skirt and socks.
