Faux fur is flying off the shelves this season, and is being spotted everywhere from cuffs and collars to accessories… and of course, shoes. Our suede “Shalin” boot will keep your legs cozy, warm, and fashionable with a shaft that is completely embellished in faux fur. This classic element of luxury has been seen on runways worldwide this season, and our “Shalin” in black or smokestack gray is a great way to bring the high-fashion trend to your wardrobe. Both glamorous and functional, this fur trend is a favorite of stylish celebrities like the Olsen twins, Beyonce, and the Kardashian sisters. With these luxurious boots, you might actually find yourself looking forward to those chilly days of winter!

Lanvin for H&M launches on November 23, and we cannot wait to own the gorgeous belted coats, one-shoulder dresses, and bold patterns of this line. Designed by Alber Elbaz, Lanvin’s artistic director, and keeping with the French house’s traditional cuts and tailoring, this collaboration brings a certain je ne sais quoi to fashionistas worldwide. Lanvin for H&M includes accessories, jewelry, and even lipstick! We will wait in inevitably (very) long lines for the runway-worthy asymmetrical mini, the fur vest that screams “Rachel Zoe,” and a taffeta tea-length cocktail dress, whose gold accents pair perfectly Sam Edelman’s gilded “Nivan” t-strap heels. Come one, come all, but come early– these styles won’t be in stores for long.
Go retro with the looks that dominated the catwalks this season! The 70’s effortlessly chic sensibility was everywhere, with pieces like maxi skirts, high-waist trousers, oversized accessories, mixed patterns, and of course, boots! Our versatile “Farrell” bootie with its side pull tabs and stacked heel, combines just the right amount of utility and femininity the decade’s darling Ali McGraw would have rocked in the classic 70’s film Love Story. Bring the boot up to date and tuck your favorite skinny jeans in them, or go literal and pair these suede ankle booties with flowing florals and crochet patterned dressed and skirts. Our “James” over-the-knee style is another must have if you’re feeling groovy. You won’t sacrifice comfort in these thigh-high flat boots that look great worn high or scrunched down. For even more “far out” style points, layer “James” boots with stockings and knee socks to get that folk songstress vibe. This trend is all about comfort, attitude, and personal style, and this boot from our Fall 2010 collection has just that.
Step up to the mic and rock out in Sam Edelman boots and pieces from FALLON jewelry. Layered necklaces are a must-have this season, so check out Ball XL Swag Bib from FALLON that combines multiple chains, sparkles, and pyramid studs. For more biker-chic attitude, The FALLON Micro Spike bracelet continues the layered chain trend, adding spike details that are definitely not for the faint of heart. These stage-worthy statement pieces pair perfectly with our “Wickley” boot, where we’ve amped up this classic motorcycle style with feminine charm as only Sam Edelman can do. Both the golden stud and chain details of FALLON jewelry and our “Wickley” will add instant rockstar glamour to your wardrobe.
