A fashion darling and 2014 recipient of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, Paul Andrew is known for sexy, stylish stilettos that also happen to be insanely comfortable. (Keira Knightley and Lupita Nyong'o are fans.) So we were pumped to find out that three years after launching his eponymous brand, the designer is breaking into bridal.
"Friends kept asking me to make their wedding shoes because they wanted to be able to dance at the reception," says Andrew. The new line marries (ahem) sophistication and whimsy and will be available on Net-a-Porter, StyleBop, and his own site for $645 and up starting in March. "My girl is elegant but, most of all, joyful," he says. "That's what weddings are about."
And we've fallen head-over-heels for Andrew's crazy-chic new bridal line. Read more about three of our favorite luxe looks below...
Fit for a (Swan) Princess
Your mother will approve of the classic snow white shade of this satin and suede shoe. But you'll love the chic twist the fluffy feathers add to this otherwise traditional princess wedding heel. ($795, Paul Andrew)
Something New, Something Blue
Check both off the list with these fearlessly feminine heels! The creamy Napa leather is totally wedding-worthy. And the smattering of blue hued suede and snake-print-kid flowers are kitschy, fun, and — dare we say — fabulous. ($1,095, Paul Andrew)
The Midas Touch
The metallic hue lends a bit of edge to an otherwise ultra-feminine design. The floral detailing is girly and whimsical, while the crystal clear Lucite heel gives it a magical fairytale touch. "A Lucite heel makes it look like you're floating, creating the perfect Cinderella moment," says Andrew. Who needs a fairy godmother, anyway? ($1,195, available at StyleBop)
