“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Brian Atwood embraces this bold statement with daring silhouettes. Enamored by his mother’s clothing pieces and accessories, the creator’s affinity with fashion began at an early age. He relocated to New York in the late 1980s to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. Later, he began modeling to meet the industry’s then celebrated names. Finally, success knocked on his door, and in 1996 he became the first American designer to be hired by the late Gianni Versace. While working there as head designer of accessories, he learned the art of shoemaking and was responsible for some of the sought-after creations of Versace.
A true visionary, Brian Atwood began his eponymous footwear brand in 2001. The artist’s passion for attention to detail injects his creations with high-octane glamour and endless femininity. Having garnered a fan base that includes likes of Lady Gaga and Kate Hudson, Brian Atwood compares his work with the Cindrella factor, where once she slides into the shoes, her life changes. The clientele admires the idiosyncratic inventions of the House for their exquisite craftsmanship and confident character.
The Luxury Closet has a rich collection of women’s shoes from the Maison in an array of textures and attractive colors. Here are some of our favorite Brian Atwood heels.
Designed to make a statement, these Dolores sandals will tirelessly work around the clock. This peep-toe pair is crafted with contrasting straps at the front that will wrap around the curves of your feet, thus offering a caged look. It is perched on slim heels and fitted with a cushioned footbed for daily ease.
The Adelia sandals are a contemporary choice to offer maximum impact with minimum effort. They embody an exotic look with the python skin, and the geometric cut-out details give a peek-a-boo effect. Topped with an exaggerated bow tie, the shoes blend seamlessly with sharp tailoring as with flowy dresses.
With their minimalist approach, these platform sandals will perfectly complement your statuesque posture. This satin pair fastens at the ankle with a delicate buckle attached to the cross-over strap and continues to form peep toes with low-cut vamps. Luxurious in a purple shade, flaunt it with jeans on weekdays and dresses on weekends.
This pair of pumps is a refined work of art with a luxe satin finish and a wavy topline. In a fuchsia shade, the pumps promise a distinctive sculpted silhouette and an attractive sight. The sleek heels and the classic pointed toes work to elongate your appearance while also being an easy pick for all seasons.
These women’s pumps, with their expertly placed curves and notable features, remind you of the brand’s artistic sensibility. Created from butter-soft suede, they are cut into a desirable shape that elegantly follows the contours of your foot with crystal embellishments placed at the counters for a shimmering update. Slip them on with cropped hemlines for full effect.
Once bought, these boots will rarely be seen in your closet. They come made from supple leather in a versatile black shade fitted with a zipper closure at the back. Mounted on heels and platforms for an extra edge, they will complement skirts, dresses, and skinny jeans alike.
