The Victorian Era

If you were here when we opened the shipment from Neosens earlier today, you would have thought we had traveled back in time! The indulgent and luxurious new shoes from Neosens have 18th and 19th century influences while maintaining a contemporary feel.

First is Syrah 205, a gorgeous bootie that plays with textures. This is a brown bootie with a beautiful and intricate black brocade pattern on the leather. The bootie is detailed with brown velvet trim and a sheer brown ribbon in the back.
Next is the appropriately named Rococo 766. All the shoes in Neosen's Rococo line are clearly influenced by French Rococo- an 18th century art movement characterised by lavish ornamentation. This black bootie again features an intricate brocade pattern stamped across the body of the built-in spat.
Rococo 742 is a brown mary-jane shoe. The leather is embossed with a snake skin pattern and the curving silhouette of the shoe and heel fits perfectly within the Rococo style of undulating organic shapes.
Next we have Syrah 204, a syrah red wine colored mary-jane. The leather has a beautiful honeycomb texture. The strap across the vamp has a velcro closure that makes this shoe easy to put on and take off your foot.
Finally, we have the piece de resistance! Rococo 799 is the ultimate in Victorian styling! The leather boot has a glorious brocade pattern all the way up the body of the shoe and silver buttons up the center. Don't worry about having to button yourself in everytime you wear these though- the buttons are simply decoration as there is a side zip to make getting them on very easy!
Show off your vintage and art know-how with these Victorian inspired shoes from Neosens!
