alaia.jpgThe weather sure isn't providing us with much to look at right now, so I've been feasting my eyes on beautiful shoes instead: shoes I couldn't afford in a million years. Azzedine Alaia usually comes up trumps on these occasion, and their new crop of delicious summer sandals certainly does not disappoint...

These exquisite monochrome perforated shoes are just fabulous, the lazer-cut precision on the leather just breathtaking. I love the trompe l'oeil effect created by the printed pattern on the platforms, too. Definitely one to put on the 'when I win the lottery' list, along with the rest of Alaia's current collection.
