Kristin Cavallari hosted a special presentation for her Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry Fall 2015 shoe collection at Row NYC as part of KIA STYLE360 NYFW. Audrina Patridge and Gretchen Rossi came to support her at the event. Her collection is edgy, sexy, trendy, and dramatically feminine. Nude, black, and grey, are the dominant colors in the line. Fringes, embellishments, and vibrant patterns also play strong roles in the collection. I like how the shoes are statement pieces that can add an extra pop to your outfit. My favorite styles included a black suede fringe bootie, a grey suede peep toe sandal, a gold metallic loafer, a black peep toe dress pump with gold embellishments, and an angled black suede pump.
I had the opportunity to speak with Kristin Cavallari about her collection. Take a look at our chat down below:
Can you tell me a bit about the inspiration for the collection?
Every collection I do is trendy. So I’m always looking to the trend forecast to see what the color is going to be, and looking at the runways and the fashion magazines because my customer is the girl who wants to be on trend and look great, without breaking the bank. They love the Luis Vuittons, but they can’t spend $1000 on a pair of shoes.
What was your favorite part about creating the collection? I’m sure you have a set process.
So how it goes down is I send the design team my inspiration: exactly what I want to do and what I’m thinking. My favorite part is getting back the computer-generated sketches. It always feels like Christmas Day when I’m opening it up! I’m always so excited. From there, I tweak things, tell them what I like and what I don’t like, and then we have samples made. It’s awesome to see the samples come to life and to actually hold it in your hand. Then, I tweak it some more, looking at swatches and picking the fabrics and colors. It’s a really fun process.
Such a pleasure speaking with Kristin and her collection is impressively alluring!
