This week marks the launch of the latest collab to come out of the Decades machine: a women's shoe line from Cameron Silver, one half of designer vintage boutique Decades (the other half is his charming biz partner, Christos Garkinos), and Canadian footwear label Modern Vintage. Naturally, Decades hosted a party to celebrate.
Models dressed in vintage Biba showed off the designs to a celebrity-studded audience including Garcelle Beauvais, Lisa Rinna and...a Bravo camera crew, who was on hand to film the soiree for an upcoming reality series that will be based on Cameron and Christos' famous Melrose outpost.
The limited-edition capsule collection of heels runs the gamut from a sophisticated blue suede style (Christos' favorite, as well as ours), to an all-out-sexy platform T-strap favored by Cameron, who said: "I have spent more than a decade of my life hunting for exquisite vintage shoes for Decades—and far longer for myself. With our take on the curved heel from the '50s, the classic T-strap of the '60s, the cork platform of the '70s and the waved wedge of the 80s, it's like all my old friends are at this party."
The line, which is priced from $250 to $300, is available as of today on Gilt.com, as well as at Decades' L.A. boutique.—Hanah Snavely
