From the pointy-toe pump to the lace-up, the flatform to the sneaker, take a feet-first approach to your styling with this season’s edit of attention-demanding shoes. Whether an embellished element or the full 360° wow-from-all-angles effect, step up your style with these new-gen shoes.
The Pointy-Toe Pump
While the pointy-toe pump may be something of a style staple, there’s no reason it can't have a playful side, too. Who better to reimagine a classic than shoe maestro Gianvito Rossi with his Calabria style? From perspex panels to crackled suede, snakeskin to studs, this modern icon is just the right mix of statement insouciance.
The Kitten Heel
Ladylike in attitude from tip to toe, there’s an unequivocal elegance about the kitten heel. And, when given a Dolce & Gabbana twist in the Bellucci and Rosa pumps, starlet glamour is infused with a modern relevance. Teaming exquisite lace with a delicate sparkling ornament at the toe, pare it down with jeans or cigarette pants by day and play to its full-on formal potential in the evening.
Taking the classic white sneaker and adding that quintessential Gucci splash, Alessandro Michele offers a total do-over on the everyday shoe. Whether embroidered bees, flowers, snakes, pearl adornments or removable patches, pimping the sneakers with a little help from Gucci this season is a must.
The Unexpected Element
Less can be more when it comes to making a statement. Look to unexpected details – everything from tassels or texture, to metallic filigree. Play with the high-low elements, mixing your super-statement shoes with a more low-key downtime look.
