It’s amazing that shoes as gorgeous, luxurious, and comfortable as these exist – and if you haven’t yet heard of Aruna Seth — hand’s down, it’s time to add a pair of her shoes to your footwear bucket list. The eponymous label, based in London, has gained recognition world wide with her bridal line picking up steam in the U.S. Her signature Cerise wedge style, her very first style created Ms. Seth told me at a recent press preview, has done quite well and is certainly the most elegant wedge I’ve ever seen! The Made in Italy label goes beyond bridal and wedges, however. Aruna really does it all with aplomb, from delicate flats to ornamental pumps in varying lengths, booties, boots, sandals, and more. Some of the most stunning styles include a striping or all-over application of Swarovski crystals, a process, Aruna shared, is done all by-hand.
Since I’ve been eyeing the brand’s Bridal wedges ever since spotting them at Gabriella New York in March, I had the thrill of consulting with Aruna over which pair to wear with my wedding dress! I’m particularly loving the Kimberley, Maria, Colette, and Cerise. More to come soon — I don’t know how I’m ever going to choose one pair; I love them all!
See the slideshow above for some of our favorite new styles for holiday 2012, including some of her most recent works — the Aruna Seth black Swarovski wedges covered in over 3,000 crystals and the colours and rings inspired by the Olympic symbol..and the ode to great Britain-hued Swarovski Cerise wedges. Enjoy!
