MUSIC AND PASSION WERE ALWAYS THE FASHION AT THE COPA
Posted on November 19, 2012 by Teresa Cannata'
Picture this: a hectic schedule, a gloomy and rainy day, tiredness and not even one chance to stay home and relax. In moments like these fashion serves as a magic balm: you can think about being somewhere else, in place and time. This won’t allow you to stay home and take a long afternoon nap, but it could cheer up your day.
Sergio Rossi Murmansk sandals have recently had this function: taking me, for a short time, back in the 70s, to the disco music era, thanks to their amazing diamanté decorations. Forget futuristic materials, heel-less acrobatics and unusual colour combinations: these are classic evening t-bar shoes, something you buy once, aware you’ll use it for a long time. In my fashion dictionary, these are “dancing” shoes, because all that glittering and sparkling echoes dance floors, partying and fun. Murmansks come in two colour combinations: the first is Paprika, with orange and gold Swarovski crystals.
The second is Nude, embellished by neutral Swarovski crystals.
The sandals are made of leather and suede; they have a 4.5 inch heel and a tiny gold buckle closure.
I know their perfect match would be a flirty chiffon dress, but I would wear them with something different. The nude Murmask sandals would be nice with a McQ printed dress, a Bone cuff by Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. and a Kotur Margo brocade minaudiere – an outfit with neutral tones. The same sandals, in the paprika version, would look lovely with a colourful Roberto Cavalli long-sleeved jersey dress, an Allegory cuff with lavender dragonfly by Alexis Bittar and a Giant Envelope clutch by Balenciaga.
