Our network partner, So Fash' On, has the exclusive on a new indie shoe designer from Romania. Coca Zaboloteanu's shoes are plentiful, she's putting out everything from jazz slip ons to open toe booties, and can be purchased straight from So Fash' On's blog. The designer's aesthetic is right on target with the color blocking trends we'll see for Spring and Fall 08. Day heels in charcoal have a burst of color at the heel or suede versions, a stylists dream come true, make for blocks of color by way of thick stripes. For sandals, Coca Zaboloteanu has turned out sweet ankle strap versions with detachable bows. The options are abundant and all shoes are priced around $150 dollars. If you fancy a slightly different color variation, you can request made to order variations as well. This, indeed, is one strong example of the power of a network. If a cool indie designer in Romania can sell her shoes through a hip fashion blog via paypal, and that fashion blog is part of a network of 254 fashion blogs via Coutorture, well, that means the fashion swimming pool just went public and there's a cannonball contest at our place. Ladies, jump on in, the water is warm.
