We love: Blonde Ambition

With a sleuth of new brands, bloggers-turned-designers and never ending celebrity (and non) collaborations, few brands truly stand out and create buzz.  That’s why when Stylesight saw Blonde Ambition‘s new fall collection our hearts skipped a beat!

Established in 2010 by Carol de Leon, Blonde Ambition delivers high-fashion through contemporary lasts and exquisite styling.   Unexpected colors and materials reflect an European influence with a dash of California flair, hence – Blonde Ambition.

For F/W 12, the brand proposes lots of textures on sophisticated yet wearable lasts in dark hues and neon highlights.  A simple pump silhouette looks fresh with a matte embossed upper and a neon patent bow.  The classic ankle bootie get updated on a pointed toe last and metallic zig-zag upper, with a tasseled pull at back.  The stand out item, however, has to be a soft embossed and dyed suede in a croc pattern, almond toe last and raw edge shaft.

Already picked up by big players such as LuisaViaRoma, Blonde Ambition is making waves and is definitely one to watch. -Jenn Tello
