It’s time for the final instalment of our fashion industry insiders and their flats interviews, and today I’m speaking to fashion blog pioneer Susie Lau. You can read Susie’s brilliant blog Style Bubble here.
“I do love heels and I love beautiful shoes but I don’t feel the need to wear them all the time. I’d rather save them for special occasions. I like the contrast flat shoes provide to dressier items of clothing. I don’t like looking too polished or too “done” so flat shoes kind of alleviate that (as well as giving me the ability to run/walk!).”
“I like all manner of brogues or chunky flatforms (like creepers) or trainers. I like to wear them with almost anything. I don’t really have any hard and fast rules when it comes to flats since my shoe collection is dominated by them.”
“On the catwalk, I think there’s definitely a reaction against those extreme super high, super stiletto shoes – heels have become more varied – flatter, more square, more sensible and there are extremes when the shoes are completely flat. I just think it’s about choice and variety. That a pair of Kenzo Vans can be as fashionable as say a pair of Nicholas Kirkwoods.”
“I’m after a new pair of Ferragamo Vara shoes – a sensible flat with a very short heel. I also really want a pair of Raf Simons trainers. They’d be one size too big for me as they’re mens but I don’t really care!”
Hope you’ve enjoyed hearing from these lovely fashion girls and sneaking a peek at their fabulous flat shoe collections. Thanks so much Alex, Emily and Susie!
