Everyone wants a piece of the accessories pie and designer Yigal Azrouël is the latest. For his Spring '09 show, he collaborated with Swiss cobbler Walter Steiger on two shoes. One was a pair of sculpted $920 leather booties on a thin, stacked heel, and the other a $795 high-heeled sandal with wide leather straps, below. As of now, the shoes are only found at one of two Yigal Azrouël boutiques in New York. “I want to see what people think, if they like them,” Azrouël said.
In addition, Yigal is creating scarves and handbags for Spring. The latter, inspired by a camera case, consists of five vintage-looking pieces ranging from $700 to $1,375. Those you can find at his stores as well as the Boston-based Gretta Luxe, Divine Girls and Carrots, both in San Francisco, and Dallas’s 45-10.
