I like to think of myself as a person well-versed in the nuances of vocabulary. Heck, I go to Powell’s City of Books just to peruse their dictionaries and thesauruses. But last week, Katie introduced me to a word that I hadn’t come across, so my first thought upon hearing it was to make it into a blog.
Do you know what ombre (or umbrae) means? It literally is a type of shadow, but alludes to a sunspot–a shadow cast on the sun by a planet. When applied to shoes, you’ve got something absolutely heavenly: a detail (or entire shoe) that starts with one color and ends up being another!
To illustrate this concept, check out my new video. Here, you’ll get a 360-view of the new Enzo Angiolini Legs in White Patent.
