I interviewed designers Shani Mifanu and Anat Zamir who sold their collections at the special Jaffa Port shoe salelast week which was called “Shoefoony.”   Here, lets check out what the shoe and bag trends the designers are planning to display next summer and how the designers start planning a new collection. Finally, we will find out what their favorite item is in their respective collections.

Interview with Shani Mifano, Shoe Designer and Owner of the shoe brand Imelda


How do you begin working on a collection? Is it by sketching, seeing something that inspires you, or from a  silhouette?

I start by picking the leather and materials for the collection.  After that I ask myself where the woman who is wearing this shoe is going. Is the shoe casual or elegant?  Each shoe in the collection has its’ own story.  The woman wearing it could be going to all kinds of different places such as a museum or for instance, a night out with friends.
"The colors and the heel make it look elegant, but the leather and the double zipper give it a contrasting causality. "

What was your inspiration for the golden shoe above?

My inspiration for the Golden Shoe was to combine between elegant and casual.  The colors and the heel make it look elegant, but the leather and the double zipper give it a contrasting causality. The double zipper is my special touch that actually expresses my love for accessories.  You can wear this shoe going to a variety of places rather than evening wear or every day wear.  It is very urban.

Are there any trends you predict for the next season?

I did not design the next collection yet, but I do think that the shoes next season will incorporate lots of colors, metallic shades, and prints.  Also, I believe the long zipper trend will continue to be seen in collections.

Is there a shoe you especially like?  If so, which one is it and why do you like it?

Over all I am very impressed with the entire collection, although I fancy the diagonal zipper snake skin flats because they are different, urban, and very exact.

Interview with Anat Zamir, Purse Designer,  .


How do you begin working on a collection?  Is it by sketching, seeing something that inspires you, or the silhouette?

I start by picking the materials such as the fabric, the handles, and the locks.  After that I design a few purses that I think could suit the materials and are in the direction I envision for the collection.

 
 
What was your inspiration for your collection?

My inspirations are from nature and from art.  I used prints and materials that remind me of those topics.

Are there any trends you predict for the next season?

My prediction for the summer is lots of colors, floral prints and prints inspired by nature.

Is there a purse you especially like?  If so, which one is it and why do you like it?

Yes I like the collage model, which I find has a special perfection to it.  It has the right shape and size and it even won the Accessories Globes Awards.  I have been developing this model for over two years since there are a lot of people who want to purchase it.
