What: Pierre Hardy shoes
Why: Ah, the French. We must admit they are quite on top of their game when it comes to fashion. Pierre Hardy, formerly of HermÃ¨s, may very well be Parisâ€™s king of footwear. His shoes are serious works of art, some so much so that theyâ€™re not really, well, wearable (case in point: these over-the-top striped wedges). Still, his chic pieces will make your feet feel and look like a million bucks.
Elegance du jour is found in the turquoise-and-gold strap heels ($639). Or turn heads by sporting the orange ($522) or electric-blue classic pumps ($526). Then there are those purely feminine spring/summer beauties, like the purple batik sandals ($481) and the red batik peep-toes. Câ€™est magnifique!
