Striding in Satin Bows

Some shoe porn for the weekend courtesy of Lanvin, the ever-flowing fountain of things worth lusting for.

It couldn't get any more dandy than emerald velvet oxfords laced-up with wide black satin ribbons.

Another bowed beauty in what appears to be burgundy satin.

Todd Selby of The Selby paid a visit to the Lanvin Homme studio in Paris and took home dazzlingly photographed images of the new accessories (not that the goods need any help).

The wavy burnt gold pattern on these lace-ups is mesmerizing. They're opulent, and, dare I say, beachy at the same time.

A fine specimen of Lanvin's signature pearl beading: iridescent indigo beads on satin, suede, and leather high-tops.

It's been a while since I've seen a bag of this price point that I've wanted as much as this very handy-looking briefcase in distressed patent leather. The deep oxblood will go with everything!

He also posted a hilariously quirky handwritten questionnaire which he had Lanvin menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver fill out. Check it out, it's delightful!

Lawl @ Mat! I was asking myself the same thing! This is downright indecent...

If ever there were photographs that showed Lanvin footwear in all its exquisite glory then they're right here.

The top two are ripe for a DIY project.

Daniel Alec: Yea it would be quite a fool-proof DIY actually. The only problem is that the bow would be a constant reminder that the shoes I'm wearing aren't Lanvins. :/
