A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a shoe without some ‘Rockstuds’ would not be quite as desirable as one covered with lots of them. Summer, as far as we’re concerned, should be comprised primarily of gin and tonics in the garden, warm, hazy evenings dining alfresco, the heady scent of roses hanging in the air . . . and a pair of Valentino’s iconic pumps on your feet. The perfect partner to a botanical print or floral summer dress is a luxe shoe or purse. With summer on the horizon, now is the time to introduce some classic, keep-forever accessories to your wardrobe – they’re guaranteed to outlast the peonies.
