Oh, Pierre

I've been harassing my friends at Gap on 34th and they think the Pierre Hardy shoes will be coming in a few weeks. 1-800-GapStyle is less confident; the party line is end of February. But my Gap kids feel confident 34th Street will be the first to get the collection because "we're the biggest store." 75 select stores will carry the line, so big or small, I'm just happy that 34th Street is getting the Pierre Hardy collection for spring, which includes these gladiator sandals:

How to choose just one? WWD said in an article last November that prices for the line will run $78-$98. Slight sticker shock for a bargain shopper, but great prices from the man who designs shoe for Hermes and Balenciaga, and makes bags like these:

and shoes from his own line like these:

I could dive into that bag and stay there all day. And although that geometric shoe may be out there for some, I LOVE it. It's different from all the other geometrics I've seen and it makes me laugh. I like a good sense of humor in my shoes. Can't wait to see what else shows up on 34th Street in two weeks, or three weeks or four....stay tuned because I'm pounding on the door day one.
