Aquilano.Rimondi's highly detailed creations are best appreciated from 360 degrees. With intricate embellishments and often-unexpected shapes, the design duo's total vision requires more than a cursory glance. Such was case for their fall '14 footwear, which from the front appeared to be a nice enough pump with a bit of bijoux decorating the eagle bill-shaped toe. But in profile, martini-shaped heels veneered in false wood were quite wonderful. A simple ankle strap tamed all this whimsy and kept models steady as they made their way down the marble runway.
