Cesare Paciotti's Brocade Boot. $850, at Cesare Paciotti Boutique, NYC
Rich in texture, color (and price), this boot recalls an opulence and beauty from times past. The brocade and textured leather, in intensely regal purple and gold, evinces the ornamental flourish that only master artisans can produce. This boot will work well with the varying shades of violet, eggplant and aubergine that will be a hit this Fall!
