Ex-model and former employee of Gianni Versace Brian Atwood, launched his own label in 2001 and literally became a hit with fashion industry insiders and A-List celebrities. Stars like Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Emma Roberts, Anna Kendrick and lots more where amongst the fashion savvy who have stepped out in a pair of Atwood heels!
I mean what’s not to love about his shoes? They are usually filled with so much sex-appeal, a pair has the power to ignite the sparks in any outfit and takes it to greater heights! My all-time favourite from his collection are the “Lola” pumps in purple. They are simply gorgeous and will work on key staples in your closet! Shame I didn’t get my hands on a pair before they sold out.
Atwood has been dubbed the “champion of both modernity and drop-dead glamour”. Also his shoe popularity doubled folds after Sarah Jessica Parker decided to rock the “Loca” studded pumps in the Sex and the City 2 Movie. The shoes were sold out within a few days of the movie premiere and one LA insider branded Atwood as “The New Manolo Blahnik” for Carrie Bradshaw.
The “Loca” pumps became the stand-out shoe of the movie and really opened a new audience for Atwood. Well at least in my eyes, I didn’t see the label as one with signature courts for the working class, but with pumps that will last you a lifetime… You’ve found the perfect pair!
