Shoe Lust : Eileen Shields for Zero + Maria Cornejo

How gorgeous is this new geometric style from Eileen Shields for Zero + Maria Cornejo? (What a mouthful!) I am totally in love with this pair from the transatlantic collaboration between Irish shoe designer Shields and Chilean Maria Cornejo's NYC fashion label Zero.

You may not have heard of Shields but she's spent most of her time since 1988 in NYC designing footwear for the fashion institution that is Donna Karen.  In fact, Shields was a key player in the launch and design of the DKNY shoe range - a label she worked on for over a decade.

Her designs are largely classic but you might recognise this rather charming spiral detailing - seen in Shield's Fall 2007 and later, on Marc Jacob's SS08 runway.
Am personally finding the collaboration more interesting than the main collection so I'd sooner spend on the heeled collaborative effort - available on Shopbop - or the flat sandals in the same style (also very cute) which can be found at Eileen Shield's European online store.
