Shop / fashion / Robertson Madison
Shoes! Madison newcomer, Robertson Madison (after Robertson Blvd in L.A., Madison Avenue AND, of course, the town) opened its doors on Wall Street with a sophisticated offering of this season’s crucial footwear. Find chunky heeled ankle booties to comfy wedges, shearling lined clogs and ballet flats from the likes of Aquitalia, Cordani and Frye. In the some-things-never-go-out of-style category, here’s your chance to snap up the iconic Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boot. For 20 years this has been the go-to riding boot, mainly because the microstretch back fits comfortably, no matter your calf size (love this year’s navy suede!).
The emphasis here is on fashion PLUS comfort, including several racks of Chalet’s jersey sportswear in easy, wearable shapes (a perfect A-line maxi dress), Habitual’s dark denims and stunning ombre scarves (just when I said NO more scarves, I couldn’t resist an eggplant cashmere/silk number). Did I mention bags? From Rebecca Minkoff, Kooba and Vin Baker, in classic shapes with clean hardware.
