Dolce and Gabbana Polka-Dot Canvas and Embroidered Cork Wedge Sandals, $1,795; Available at Net-A-Porter
For Spring 2015, many designers chose to focus their attention south of the ankle. Sky-high wedges with extra pizzazz strutted down some of the most prominent runways and stole the spotlight. This pair from Italian power duo, Dolce & Gabbana, embodies the spirited elegance for which the house has become known. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana created their ultra-femme SS15 collection as a love letter to the beautiful country and of Spain all of its women. Each bejeweled corset and curve-hugging midi dress is distinctly Italian in its excess, and the same goes for these whimsical platforms. Spectacular embroidery and a quirky polka-dot pattern make this retro shoe the perfect companion for romantic vespa rides around the Colosseum or strolling the Passiege de Grácia for designer goodies.
