This season, shoes took precedence over any other accessory. Platforms were among the standout styles, with brands re-inventing the 1970s hero shoe in various modern guises. Gucci, Dior, Erdem and Marc Jacobs all showcased the look, with towering heels adorned with ditsy florals, sequins and tapestry prints.
Embellished sliders and flip-flops featured in collections from Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu and Alexander Wang, with many other designers upgrading the traditional beach shoes with florals, sequins and Perspex detailing. This season also brought abstract shoe designs to the fore, with Mulberry’s reinterpretation of last season’s mules, Simone Rocha’s angular heels and Balenciaga reworking the sock boot.
