Hottest, Newest, Latest: Azzedine Alaïa's Homage To Africa

Azzedine Alaïa has something for us Afrolista's who have a serious love affair with shoes, that's right ...we love our shoes! But this time he's paying homage to Africa, and yes he is an African... Tunisian to be exact! We've been letting society divide up the continent with this Sub-Saharan mess for far too long, and Africans are Africans regardless of what part of the continent we originate from!

Now, let's get back to the fabulous shoes that he has designed with cowrie shells, raffia and other natural embellishments that will have us "shoeaholics" drooling for days. So many designers have offered up their versions of the "exotic and ethnic," but  this master can truly say his shoes are authentic to the core in their design aesthetic. Check them out below and decide which ones you love!

How about these perfect flats with a long flowing, voluminous sheath or sundress?

What women wouldn't want to rock these bada@#$... wedges?

Or these with a fierce African print or Western designed garment?

Or these with the perfect "nuevo style" Little Black Dress?
