These wood wedges by Jill Sander are a great example of how laser cutting technology can be incorporated into high fashion. The shoe looks like a piece of nature washed ashore, driftwood topped with bubbles of seaweed.
They are $1,240 at Jill Sander stores.

Shattered glass in some form appeared on nearly every piece in the collection - it made the shape of artfully laser-cut detailing on white and leather dresses; as a graphic print on trousers, tops, skirts and trousers; as delicate jewels embroidered into bodices; and perhaps, most beautiful of all, as iridescent crystals encrusted into dresses - both short and floor-length - to create the illusion of a fractured pane, highlighting what looked like hundreds of shimmering shards.
