Next month, Tabitha Simmons's new shoe line will land exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. Simmons, a former model and wife of photographer Craig McDean, has worked as a stylist for years, collaborating on shoots for Vogue and Another Magazine and for collections such as Givenchy, Fendi, Calvin Klein, and Alexander McQueen. Her new footwear line features a range of looks, from fringe ankle boots to strappy stiletto sandals. There's also a pair of the season's requisite style: the thigh-high boot (this one comes in black leather and suede with sexy lacing up the back). The shoes are mostly done in dark, fall shades like black, chocolate brown, and smoky gray, but there are rich, bright hues like canary yellow and blood red mixed in to spice it up. For comfort purposes, Simmons has added a hidden platform to many of the higher-heeled pairs and several styles have thin layers of gum sole lining the bottoms for traction. The line, which is made in Italy by master cobblers, is indeed elegant and well crafted, but the prices are very steep, with pairs retailing for $795 to $2,200. The collection arrives exclusively at Bergdorf in New York, Ikram in Chicago, and Maxfield in Los Angeles in July, though no exact date is specified yet.
