In The Showroom: Acote Spring 09

Acote, the footwear brand that's a sibling to (or branch of) Cotelac, put out two pairs of Spring 09 shoes that we just couldn't get over--how can two perfect pairs of flat ankle boots not be on sale when we want a pair most? The first was a nude suede boot with a fold over cuff. We pictured wearing them into the ground and never, ever throwing them away. The second was a charcoal grey pair with a contrasting nude interior. We imagined them with Spring dresses and skirts...and just about keeled over. Cotelac, much like Coclico (and, in fact, the other brands at Marie Saeki showroom) is a brand that veers more toward 'classic' than 'high fashion' and what we like about this is that you get the sense that these items are long lasting. Nothing in the Acote Spring 09 line is something you'll be tired of seeing by Spring, nothing is too trendy that you'll fear wearing them the following season if you like. We're starting to see the value in this aesthetic more and more these days...
