Giuliano Fujiwara, SS12 shoes

These shoes from the current Giuliano Fujiwara collection have me intrigued and excited in equal measure. It retains the stitched welt but features a notched sole that appears normal from the front but tapers outwards resulting in quite a striking silhouette. 

Penny loafers were also given this geisha-esqe treatment in shades of slate blue and brick red.

At first glance these were an unfortunate mishmash destined for the end of season clearance (more so the brick red variant), and what seemed like a weak attempt at fusion is actually quite a subtle and well executed shoe.
