Carmen Miranda

Pedro Lourenço SS14

Carmen Miranda is one of the 3 influences of the Pedro Lourenço Spring/Summer 2014 Collection.

Other Carmen Miranda-inspired collections : Charlotte Olympia Spring/Summer 2011 (this collection, which featured the « Bananas Is My Business » pumps, decorated with hand-stitched leather fruits, was a tribute to Carmen Miranda), Chris Benz Resort 2011 (this collection paid homage to Carmen Miranda and Sascha Brastoff).

    Do you follow this blog? I just found it. Was initially drawn to it just for the Italian connection but I enjoy it. You might, too… now the shoes…here…not sure about them…but honestly, I am getting to the point where I don’t desire a shoe closet; I want to dedicate an entire WING.

      Thank you very much for the info on duextutte : I didn’t know this blog (OMG, there are so many great blogs out there !!!) but, as I’m very curious, I checked it out, and I liked the post about the S/S 2014 trends a lot ! You seem to be a little bit shoe-obsessed, and, as Carrie Bradshaw is my favorite style icon, I won’t blame you ! These ones are really strange but pretty covetable to me !

      Me too, thx !! I’m especially crazy about the purple ruffle which adds a vibrant pop of color to this very graphic look ! XXX
