New obsession, Del Piano!!! A little boutique on 8th Avenue where Italy meets New York. The sneakers here are so perfect it hurts. An amazing use of color and texture. My personal favorite the woven (or Intreccio) leather mid top sneaker, which comes in red, green, navy, or white. These shoes can be worn casual or a bit dressed up with a nicely tailored suit (which Del Piano carries as well.) The boutique Del Piano also sells an impeccable RTW collection by Italian designer Daniele Alessandrini. It may just be that perfect holiday gift you were looking for.
