With heels no longer ruling the sartorial space from dusk to dawn, the elegant flat is claiming its stake for evening. The Spring/Summer 2018 runways saw the ante upped as flowing dresses were finished with ballet slippers at Giambattista Valli, ball gowns with slingbacks at Erdem and double-breasted blazers and wide-leg trousers with sandals at Kenzo. How will you wear yours?
Height-defying heel or no, Aquazzura's bold colours and fun detailing remain equally covetable in flat styles, too. Complete with playful appliqué, Aquazzura’s slippers will add a pop of colour to any outfit.
Toughening up eveningwear since 2010, Valentino's Rockstuds add just as much edge when flat.
Roger Vivier has been a go-to for the French style elite for more than 90 years, so if any brand understands the versatility of a flat, it's Vivier. The Chips flat, in high-shine patent and with signature buckle detailing, is an easy-to-wear style that will add a little Parisian flair to evening outfits.
