Pierre Hardy Joins Gap

What: Shoe designer Pierre Hardy, whose footwear goes for $500 and up at pricey stores like Bergdorf and Nordstrom, is designing a spring shoe capsule collection for Gap, with prices ranging from $78 to $98.

The Lowdown: From WWD “Hardy, known for his sculptural sky-high stilettos under his eight-year-old signature label, as well as those he designed for edgy brands such as Balenciaga, adopted Gap’s casual aesthetic in creating the collection. The spring line includes a wooden wedge sandal with an ankle strap in printed fabrics and a chambray. There is also a strappy chunk-heel sandal and a flat, leather gladiator style.”

What I say: Pierre Hardy is major- go to your nearest Saks, Nordstrom, etc and you’ll see what I mean. However, I hope he comes better than the leather gladiator shown above. Seriously, it looks quite similar to a pair I purchased last season from Aerosoles.
