Kelsi Dagger’s shoes, boots and handbags are just as spunky and cutting-edge as those of its elder sister, Pour La Victoire, but go a bit easier on the budget. Named after the Fratellis song “Chelsea Dagger,” which tells the tale of a burlesque dancer, Kelsi Dagger is the brainchild of New York-based designers Jay Adoni and David Giordano. The duo launched the label in 2008 to offer trendy, finely crafted footwear defined by a quirky, irreverent quality and unexpected details. Kelsi Dagger’s provocative, wide-ranging collection includes everything from studded sandals, suede tassel loafers, sky-high leopard wedges, and metallic platform pumps to ankle booties and sexy thigh-high boots. The label’s of-the-moment buckled satchels, crocodile-embossed crossbody bags, and sleek totes skew minimalist and consistently meld practicality with style.
Love the combo of masculine and feminine style? Candela’s classic, borrowed-from-the-boys designs are matched with ladylike, on-trend touches. Think Chelsea booties in jewel-toned velvet, slick metallic oxfords with decorative perforation, and rugged suede slip-ons trimmed in bright fringe.
