Only two years out of the gate, and already, M2Malletier has become a street style staple thanks to its signature “needle” hardware (inspired by medieval armor and medical instruments!) and distinctly structured silhouettes. For Fall ‘14, designers Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez integrated “edgier” silver and onyx metals, exotics like croc, and as shown on the lush Amor Fati, a heady dose of calf hair. When putting together my autumnal uniform, this will be a must. The juxtaposition of rich burgundy with sleek golden hardware is as hard to resist as they come, especially when paired with Valentino’s romantic mini dress ($1,795). A dramatic shoe would be too much with the abundantly floral print. Paul Andrew’s understated slingbacks ($615) will tie everything together nicely, not only with this outfit, but with just about any other you can think up this season!
