Is it footwear, or is it art? This question will likely spring to mind when you check out Camilla Skovgaard’s collection of sculpted shoes, boots, and sandals — a favorite among fashion-forward celebs such as Kristen Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow. Restrained yet bold, Skovgaard’s designs feature meticulous craftsmanship and distinctive details such as serrated rubber soles (Skovgaard’s signature feature), sky-high geometric heels, metal studs, decorative zippers, and colorblocking. Originally from Denmark, Skovgaard launched her footwear line after working for years as a custom couture designer in the Middle East. Now based in London's hip East End, she turns out some of the most recognizable shoes available today — from platform peep-toe wedges with contrasting embossed straps to tongue stiletto booties crafted from orchid-colored suede.

There’s not a label here that would go unrecognized by the shoe-addicted masses. And, the styles — from teetering thigh-high boots to sculpturally cutout flats — embody the best these fashion luminaries have to offer. Turn to Camilla Skovgaard for plenty of edgy details, like metal chains and jaggedly treaded platforms. From Dolce & Gabbana, find menswear-inspired oxfords and loafers, set atop sexy high heels.
