​Couture Centerpieces from Thierry Rabotin: Redford and Daria

Feb 1st 2019

Textures are back to mix and mingle in the Italian designer’s couture selection of new after dark favorites.

Our current obsession in the couture world is marked by pattern play in the form of textiles. The most sought-after designers are embracing a more linear way of thinking with woven fabrics like mesh, silk, and organza with a strong focus on ethereal weights for optical purposes, giving the impression of lithe movement. Italian houses helmed the trend with dresses of all lengths flourished with bouncy ruffles, sheer gathers, and draping. These performative haute-couture fabrics and ornamentations capitalize on light and shadow to produce lines and curves. Shoe designers then adapted the trend into fancy footwork for the modern gal so that you can bring home the runway in a more practical way. Thierry Rabotin has introduced two new styles for their prized collection of couture pieces. Priced respectively at $695 and $520, the exclusive Redford and Daria pumps in time-honored black are visually sentimental investments that will take your formal looks to new heights.

Redford brings back memories of old Hollywood glamour with the gracefully ruched vamp of its ‘duffy’ mesh upper that offers sinuosity and elegance. The Art Deco inspired geometric heel in metallic gold and the pointed toe make this sophisticated pump a prime choice to accompany evening wear. Daria is sleek, simple, and retro in an opaque mesh piped with supple suede around the perimeter and peep toe. A self covered buckle secures the slingback strap for an easy on and off wearing style that facilitates quick wardrobe changes. The block heel adds an extra layer of tactile detailing with its high-shine finish. Redford and Daria aren’t your average pumps as they are cleverly fitted with the Italian brand’s signature nappa leather lining and constructed with few seams to encourage a blissful night of lingering under the stars.

Thierry Rabotin’s Redford and Daria pumps are perfect for formal affairs. Revive a little black dress in a calf-grazing length with the minimalist Daria. Add glitzy chandelier earrings and a pavé diamond tennis bracelet to complete the look for a black-tie event. Stand out in party-ready cocktail pants when you choose a pair in bold pink or red satin. The outfit is easily made age-appropriate when offset by a black blazer in a matching fabric. Just add sleek hair and dangling earrings to bring it all together and make it more feminine. Redford is your hero when you just can’t decide what to wear. This show-stopper draws attention to your feet and tricks the eye into thinking you put more work into your look than you actually did.
