Sperry-licious

IMG-20130314-00090     I have to say that I love chic classics, but as a high fashion editor and stylist, I’ve learned to beware of some older prestige brands purporting to re-invent themselves. What they do is often just not enough to make them really modern. But, happily, not so with Sperry, of classic topsider sailing shoe fame.

     Last month at the launch of their new Fifth Avenue NY flagship  store, Sperry unveiled some of their newly colorful and wildly patterned spring offerings. Pizzaammm!

     Care for a leopard or zebra-striped topsider? A bright, abstract print or yellow (or cobalt or hot pink) soled “classic”? Tri-colors, metallics, glitters, patent and sequined versions?  And who knew Sperry did such great flat sandals?  Totally chic, and up there with some of the best names in luxury shoes.

     Comfortable, cool, and casually retro in a fun way, the newest topsiders look great with skirts and dresses as well as the obvious shorts and jeans.  I love them for men with summer suits– and with more work-like jackets and pants for women. (Go against type is my #1 fashion rule.)

So, put your fashion boat in the water for Spring and set sail with a pair of Sperrys (www.sperry.com). Humor and great summer style are your co-captains!
