Must Have Shoes: Omelle

These beauties above are just a small sampling of the shoes that Omelle's designers, Cherise Angelle and Nicole LaFave, have created for their Spring/Summer 2009 collection. Cherise and Nicole met at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA and bonded over their common love of beautiful shoes, and since then the duos designs have appeared in Vogue, Lucky Magazine, and the Los Angeles Times. Here's more about the ladies from their site:

It started with a spark, something akin to the perfect pair of boots. Amidst illustrations, scrap fabrics and inspiration boards at LA's prestigious Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, two shoe-obsessed designers discovered a common interest—luxury footwear with a distinct and imaginative voice. Combining a singular vision with years of experience, Cherise Angelle and Nicole LaFave have created a partnership dedicated to serving the sophisticated shopper, a lady who not only speaks in style but continually lives in it.

With a background rich in style, business and design—Angelle has worked in luxury product placement, while LaFave has honed her talents in graphic and knitwear design, working as an art director and self-employed designer—each woman offers a unique and varied background which helps to guide their direction. While Angelle appeals to the high-end sophisticate with a penchant for pumps and pearls, LaFave draws from her artistic roots, setting a new pace in fashion. When mixed and melded, the outcome is Omelle, or (√§hm' elle), a new voice and vision within the luxury footwear industry. (Omelle.com)

Check out those white booties in the first picture - I found them so unique and beautiful that I printed out a picture of them and hung it on my wall. I use the picture as a reminder to save my money so that one day I can afford such lovely shoes! Also, be sure to check out the heels on all of the Omelle shoes, they are so artistically made. Too many shoe designers forget that the design is not only in the shoe, but also the heel! Omelle's official online store should be launching sometime in February or March, and if you're lucky you might find a boutique near you that currently sells Omelle shoes.
