It’s always exciting when one of our favorite designers comes out with a more affordable collection. And while these less expensive works can often range from lines for Target, Macy’s and H&M, I often feel a bit disappointed at the cheap version of what was once a luxurious piece of art. And please, does adding the word “Target” to our label really make us feel luxurious? (yes, I’m speaking to you, Mulberry for Target).
The B Atwood for Saks debut is to me exactly what these collections are all about. The price points aren’t so low that the quality will suffer, but you’ll definitely feel you can justify that classic Atwood pump you were once on the fence about.
Even better? Often times these “budge- friendly” compilations result in a much less creative version of what was loved about the designer in the first place. Not in (ahem, smart and handsome) Mr. Atwood’s case, though, much to our relief! He’s taken the opportunity to be even more innovative with a cohesive variety of textures, prints and embellishments (think leopard, calf hair and fringe), but while still throwing in some traditional platform pumps to stay true to his aesthetic. I honestly cannot even begin to tell you which shoe is my favorite as the collection as a whole is anything but monotonous. In fact, I think you’ll find there’s a little something for everyone in this high-heeled line-up.
