Two shows today had footwear that made me swoon. But before we get on to that, here’s what I wore. The skate shoes are Essentiel Antwerp (new in the UK this season), jumper and bag by Mint Velvet, Zara coat and MiH jeans. I took an arty farty shoe shot on the mirrored catwalk at Christopher Kane (and another in the full length mirror in the loo. Less glamorous).
But back to those shows. First, Giles, whose gowns and skirts were styled with adidas sneakers. All the best styles were present and correct – Gazelles, Superstars and Stan Smiths – and some looked to me to be hand painted, such was their glossy, slightly cracked finish. My favourites were the pale pink Gazelles.
My top show of fashion week so far though was the first of the day: Roksanda Ilincic. The whole thing – clothes, colours, ponytails – was beautiful, but it’s the flat boots in particular that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about. They are a collaboration with Nicholas Kirkwood, so I’d better start saving now; they won’t come cheap but I reckon it would be worth it for a slice of that neon action. Mmmm….divine.
