Shoe Designer Payal Kothari Of Veruschka Picks The 5 Must-Haves This Season
Shoe sculptor Payal Kothari is known to create bespoke, handmade shoes for her label, Veruschka. “We make skyscraper shoes that can make your everyday experience sexy,” says Payal, whose shoes have been worn by celebrities such as Kajol, Maria Goretti, Zoa Morani, Nina Manuel and Hema Malini and displayed on the ramp by Manish Malhotra, Vikram Phadnis, Rina Dhaka, James Ferreira and Pria Kataria Puri. Here, Payal picks the five types of shoes you must have this season.
1) Floral Shoes
The Veruschka TARA pink shoe is your floral pick of the season
The floral combination can be seen on a variety of styles—and it never fail to impress. Floral shoes add a feminine touch and delicacy to the ensemble.
2) Crystal Embellishments
The Veruschka SANA shoe is your crystal shoe of the season
Oversized crystal embellishments are by no means reserved for evening attire. Spring’s coveted silhouette is a casual flat sandal covered in huge crystals. Be careful not to purchase shoes overdone with embellishments, though—they can look quite tacky.
3) Artsy Shoes
The Veruschka TARA Bronze shoe is your artsy choice of the season
This season, art becomes wearable, with prints such as batik and painted faces on the shoes. These shoes tell a story and complete the look with that last element of style you are trying to achieve.
The Veruschka SHEEBA ankle-strap shoes are a must-have this season
The hottest trend this season is super-thin ankle-strap shoes. These straps elongate the ankles, making them look dainty and light. They add balance to the shoe for support, while still being très fashionable.
Part wedge and part flat, these shoes perfectly marry comfort and style. The raised bottom will give you height, the chunky uppers give support to your feet and they are perfect for the rains as they prevent your feet from getting into water puddles.
