With a return to the rise of party outfits, it’s inevitable that our heel heights will skyrocket as well. After two years of slippers, sneakers and ballet flats, it’s time to take it to the next level with the spring day silhouette. Bigger, crazier and, yes, brighter than ever, Bottega VenetaThe eye-catching platforms are a nod to retro ’70s OG styles. But they’re also packed with refreshingly modern details, like a striking square toe, futuristic clasp closure and glossy finish. And just like those of us who dreamed of a night out on the town, these towering beauties are ready to party.

With a star-studded new creative director, Glenn Martens, and a just-launched Soho flagship, a legendary denim brand Diesel gets a serious upgrade. Martens (who is also a guest designer for Jean Paul Gaultier Couture and runs the Y/Project label) infuses Diesel’s offerings with her own irreverent and expert tailoring. He toasted the new two-story boutique at a splashy opening party last month, with a DJ spinning for guests like La La Anthony and Alexandra Richards. The industrial-chic space with exposed brickwork also showcases Diesel Library, the brand’s new sustainable denim collection.

Parisian brand Am I celebrates its 10th anniversary in style. In December, the brand opened its first U.S. outpost: a chic 2,000-square-foot mirror emporium in Soho, stocked with apparel and accessories for men and women. The brainchild of Ami’s creative director, Alexandre Mattiussi, the flagship also features limited-edition collaborations, including a sophisticated new range of slouchy felt hats (in luxe hues of burgundy, green and black) with the famed Italian milliner Borsalino.
