One, Two, Buckle My Shoe

Dolce & Gabbana, a world renowned fashion house started by the Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefeno Gabbana, runs two central lines namely Dolce&Gabbana, specialising in luxury items that are formal and timeless following long term trends as opposed to their other line D&G, which is urban inspired and more casual and has the speciality of setting trends rather than following them.

It can be easily guessed from the design of these shoes that they belong to the D&G line.Buckles are a big trend this season and I have spotted buckles in all sizes right from huge buckles covering the entire vamp to small ones covering the toes and ankle.But never have I seen teeny tiny buckles on the side of a shoe, at least not before seeing these shoes.The thin strappy cage shoes get lifted to the pedestal of high fashion with the buckles placed in loops.The open toe front and the strappy buckles provide minimal coverage for the foot, thereby creating an interesting silhouette.

Wearing the pair with a white dress with just a hint of black, balances out the intense black color of the shoes creating a very vibrant yet classy look.
