Gauxing Places In Our Spring Pointes2017-03-19
A wardrobe staple all year round, the Pointe has become our seasonal canvas to explore the textures and colors outside of our core Classic and Demi offering. We're excited by the freedom it gives us to explore new personalities for our ballerina season after season. Inspired by the theme of #gauxingplaces, we created a thoughtful edit with adventure in mind.
This capsule is designed to both take our Gaux Girls on the road and to infuse everyday with the spirit of travel and adventure. Our new textures include the wild Zebra haircalf sourced from one of the world’s most preeminent Italian tanneries, the classic Midnight Blue made of luxe Italian suede and the Linen ballerina which is woven in Spain and finished with grosgrain trim and a suede bow. We're inspired by the timeless sense of elegance and adventure.
While we designed this collection with our Gaux Girls in mind - those bold, risk-taking women who are energized by the endless opportunities that lie ahead - we can pointe to a few muses who have inspired our warm-weather style. The new Pointe collection feels particularly akin to Meryl Streep's iconic look in Out of Africa - Classic and understated, but still daring. Another very different source of inspiration for this collection was a beautiful book we picked up on a recent visit to The Crystal Bridges Museum, called The Open Road. Celebrating photography and the experience of the "American Road Trip," it pulls scenes from all corners of the country captured by photographers like Robert Frank and William Eggleston over the course of the last fifty or so years. It certainly inspired our current sense of wanderlust, while also reminding us of certain themes we all can identify with: hope, belonging, and the American Dream.
As we transition from winter to spring, we're looking forward to stripping off our salty boots and wooly tights and slipping back into these chic little flats. We'll be cleaning our closets and turning towards accessories - think shoes, bags, statement jewelry - to complete the perfect pared-down look. We'll be revisiting warm-weather neutrals with our Linen Pointe - and offsetting a little black pant with our Zebra haircalf. We're big believers in building a closet of essentials and this spring we'll be keeping our looks streamlined and elegant: The perfect complement to these pointed-toe flats.
All that to say, we hope these shoes will carry you into the impending spring season with the signature confidence and chic of our Gaux Girls. And don't forget to share where Margaux takes you this spring with #gauxingplaces - We'd love to share your story!
