Craving Chilean? Spring '12 Shoes From Barbara Briones Will Satisfy

Very few things can distract us from our infatuation with Chilean food and drink: Give us an empanada and a deep glass of red ANYTIME. But the Barbara Briones spring '12 shoe lookbook, soaked in the country's colorful culture, caught our eye and gave us a raging appetite for shoes that mimic some of the Chile's most beautiful aspects.
Briones takes us traveling through the Atacama desert in an incredible neon-and-neutral palette, and lets us virtually tour the original street-style markets full of traditional elements of craftsmanship in metalworking and handwoven designs. We're craving the knotted heel detail on the Barbara Briones loafer pump, and are all about those gold highlights. Check the whole collection, all handmade in Santiago de Chile, for some serious Latin American inspiration — almost good enough to eat.
