Shoe trends for Fall 2011 are as diverse as ever, so every woman can find something for herself. Alexandre Birman's Fall 2011 collection - available at Holt Renfrew - carries his signature avant-garde style and the use of exotic skins. This season genuine python is paired up with the soft, classic elegance of suede. The heels are very sleek and extremely high, giving the shoes a very sexy look. Luxurious and well-crafted, they come in very practical colours. The earth tones and new metallics complement the existing grey colour chart, making it very sophisticated and modern.
