"Sexy is in the DNA of the brand," said shoe designer, Brian Atwood, at The Lion in West Village last night. He was celebrating the launch of his gently priced 'B' by Brian Atwood line. "But it was important to pay attention to the little details that make it feel luxurious, too. I made it a point to have some of the work and materials done in Italy." True to his word, there's a racy feel to the designs; platform suede booties sport swingy fringe and sky-high sandals lash across the ankle like bondage straps. 'B' by Brian Atwood is his new lower-priced collection of uber HAUTE zipper detail heels and fringed booties with prices that start at $100. The shoes will be available starting in mid-August.
