Exciting news comes this way from Italian shoe brand Salvatore Ferragamo. The debut collection of Paul Andrew, the brand’s new design director for women’s shoes, is finally here in Manila. And while archival pieces from 1939 to 1950 were his inspiration, the designs are brightly modern with unique elements that are so extra.

Try them on for size at the “High Tech | High Craft” pop-up store at The Grand Atrium of Shangri-La Plaza that will be there until Saturday, October 28.

The walls are painted in the same stripes as Ferragamo’s iconic rainbow platform sandals, and the displays are in the same flower shape you’ll find on the heels of the shoes. Perfect for snapping photos (cue the Wes Anderson-style filters).

We saw Tricia Centenera and designer Rosanna Ocampo at the launch trying on the pointy stiletto pumps and flower-heeled slides respectively. Here are a few easy faves, because we know they’ll find a place in any woman’s wardrobe—and because the gold-wire-wrapped heels are a sophisticated touch—are the following:

The slant at the vamp is so sexy and gold-coiled heel makes this staple better than basic.

 Minimalist slides to keep things elegantly laid-back, but the flower heel adds an element of fun.

 The extra height makes it perfect for dancing up a storm.

But if you don’t manage to catch the pop-up, these styles and the other jewel-toned offerings they have for the season are available at the Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques in Greenbelt 4, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Makati, Newport Mall and Solaire Resort & Casino.
