Michael Jorden tried his hand at baseball, The Rock successfully crossed over to acting from pro-wrestling and J. Lo started out as a fly dancer on In Living Color. Sometimes the crossover works and other times it’s a epic fail. Trying something new is scary and exhilarating.
For this reason we are so excited to see the amazing success of Leandra Madine’s debut collection for Net-A-Porter. The famous blogger’s shoe line — which ranges from $350 for lace-up flats to $795 for velvet over-the-knee boots — went live on Friday. Already, several styles are nearly sold out.
The collection consists of only 10 shoe styles but the designs and names make them nearly irresistible. The ‘Lol If You Think I’m Walking‘ sandals are plush velvet platforms embellished with gold stars and studs. The ‘I’m Here To Party‘ are bubble gum ankle high boots that embossed velvet and offset by metallic navy leather trims.
Our favorite style, and not cooinsidentally, the most popular are the ‘The Alternative to Bare Feet‘ loafers that are made of crusted pink velvet. They are both masculine but girly, which is true to the Man Repeller’s personal style.
We celebrate Leandra for stepping into new shoes. We don’t expect that any of these styles will make it to sale season but you can be sure we will buy more if they do. We can’t wait to see what’s to follow.
