Luxe For Less Lucite Shoes
Lucite shoes have been a pretty popular trend overseas since Spring 2013, especially since many of the luxury brands such as Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, etc. all came out with their own designs using the material. I’ve seen it in magazines and pics of celebs and been wondering when the trend would make its way to the Philippines.
Lucite is a solid transparent plastic made of the same material used in plexiglas. What I find really cool about this look is that it gives the illusion of glass (in fact, Lucite is said to be 8 times clearer than glass). I’ve seen a few lucite-inspired shoe designs in some of the shoe displays here but none that really made me think that the look was really catching on. Until I saw the display window of Charles & Keith.
I was happy to see that Charles & Keith now has a line of Lucite wedges. The line has 2 designs: a plain pointed heel and a two-toned “brogue” pointed heel. The plain pointed heel comes in black, silver, and beige, which I think would be great for the office to add a little oomph to your outfit. The two-toned “brogue” pointed heel, because of its decorative perforations, comes in blue & black and beige & black.
I personally like the beige & black two-toned “brogue” pointed heel because it’s just so eye catching. But I do think the line needs a little more variety. I think it would be really cool to see more luxe for less Lucite shoe designs around.
