Sole Sensations!

Never underestimate the power of the right party shoe. It’s a lesson Cinderella taught us early on…

Kazar Limited Edition made with Crystals from Swarovski

In fact, we’d go as far as to say that a pair of crystal-encrusted shoes, with perhaps a coordinating accessory for really big occasions, is a wardrobe staple. Pair them with a cocktail dress when the occasion demands va-va-voom, or with jeans for laid-back glamour—it’s the most effective way to elevate an otherwise dead simple, understated outfit.

Footwear and accessory brand Kazar’s latest collaboration with Swarovski is the perfect demonstration of super-useful, glamorous versatility. Over the 20 years that the company has been in business, it has picked up awards for its jaw-dropping collections, to the point where it’s now poised to enter the United Arab Emirates, Hungary and Czech Republic, with a few more countries to follow.

So pay serious attention to the Kazar’s limited edition embellished with crystals from Swarovski, which offers us dazzling heels, stylish sporty slip-ons, and stunning bags shimmering with crystals that catch and throw the light. If you’re looking to make an entrance, then it’s definitely the show-stopping Natalie pump. Made from top-quality black suede emblazoned with 1,547 Swarovski crystals, this beauty has a sky-high 12cm stiletto. Someone smart has given it a lot of thought: cleverly cut to slim the foot, it also has a very welcome sheepskin insole that takes the suffering out of looking gorgeous. There’s even a little silver Kazar crystal-embellished logo stud on the arch of the sole.

You get the same all-over crystallized effect in the flatteringly sleek Luciana, the main difference being that it’s cut lower at the sides and has a less vertiginous height of 10cm. There’s also another version of Luciana that makes a subtle but equally glamorous statement—this time with a 10.5cm stiletto decorated only at the heel and ankle area.

If you want to get noticed for more than your footwear, consider a Carmen clutch bag or a Scarlet shoulder bag made from full-grain leather and nubuck, with crystals in bold graphic patterns and slinky silvery chains for stand-up occasions when you want to sling it over your shoulder to keep your hands free.

And when it’s time to get back to terra firma, do it with sporty elegance in one of Kazar’s three styles of Timea slip-on sports shoes. As comfy as slippers, these have knockout cool: choose between sneakers in black or gray, scattered with Swarovski crystals across the heel and toe and the Kazar FiForm monogram on the sole. Alternatively, go for the black high-tops in suede lined with sheepskin, with eye-catching black crystals on leather straps. Once tried on, you’ll never look back.

All Kazar products made with crystals from Swarovski are available at www.kazar.com and in selected Kazar stores in Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, and the United Arab Emirates.
