Market Watch: Stuart Weitzman

Stuart Weitzman Spring 2012

Do you know what makes for a great Thursday morning? Shoes. (You knew I was going there, right?) I kicked off my day (pun intended) at Stuart Weitzman, where there was a distinct disco vibe in the air. Patent platforms in pastels and gold as well as even higher platforms in embossed leather held court with sexy, ankle-cuffed heels. The Weitzman girl is going dancing all night long come Spring 2012.

Picking up on the colorblocking runway trend, some of my favorite shoes were in a rainbow pack of colors. Pink, orange and green? Yes! Black, white and red? Absolutely. They're so fun and fresh for the season—makes me wish winter weren't looming before us.

But even a disco diva can't live in heels alone. Leather flats with gold buckle detailing are chic and perfect for some of those caftans I saw on the runway.

The Spring 2012 collection lands in stores (and online!) starting January.
