This British women’s shoe designer is finally dropping anchor in New York with his first-ever stateside store. Park Avenue princesses and hip downtown gals alike can ogle the architecture-inspired footwear, featured in runway shows by designers such as Prabal Gurung and Erdem. The Vogue Italia–award-winning heels will run you a pretty penny, so be prepared to do some damage. We’ve got our eyes on delicate lace-and-suede booties ($1,165) and satin-and-snakeskin peep-toe pumps ($1,185). Snag wedding-appropriate slingbacks with bow detailing ($895) and basic leather pumps ($795). Our favorite finds, however, are tropical bird-print satin pumps ($695), which make a fab contrast to a little black dress.
