Fashion month may be coming to a close but we’re not done yet! Take a look at our top SS16 styles from New York, London, Milan and Paris and discover what trends will be hitting the shops next summer!
Slip-on sneakers paired with gold anklets took Calvin Klein back to its minimal, sportswear heritage. However, small creative elements such as frayed satin edges made this collection far from ordinary.
It looks like laser cut footwear is here to stay for spring 16! Marchesa unveiled their first luxury footwear collection with an array of intricate laser cut heeled sandals showing their footwear can be just as beautiful as their apparel.
Michael Kors gives you three trends in one sandal for Spring/Summer 16. The platform sandal trend has been interpreted by many designers, with Kors adding texture in the form of blue and grey python print and a crossover strap with buckle for wearability.
Cut out boots and belt bags adorned the Burberry SS16 show and were a hit with the fashion critics. Reflecting the classic trench coat buckle Burberry is synonymous for, the adaptation of a small officer’s shoulder bag from the Burberry archive is fashioned in a smooth English suede and House check cotton, woven at the Burberry mill in Yorkshire.
Barely-there Perspex and strappy sandals worked perfectly with the acid brights at Jonathan Saunders. These are definitely a SS16 staple!
Holly Fulton and Christian Louboutin
SS16 bought about Fulton’s second collaboration with Christian Louboutin with her repeat prints applied on to Bella Tinge wedged sandals. The collection had a 60’s edge, with neon geometric prints and detailed embroidery, giving a new twist to the platform sandal that’s fast becoming SS16 must-have shoe!
Gianvito Rossi gave us a Navajo theme for SS16, with monochrome stiletto sandals with fine white and black strips of napa suggestive of Native American feathers. Finished with lace up ankle detailing this stand-out shoe is elegant yet evocative.
If you’re looking for a statement summer sandal, Jimmy Choo is the answer! Creative director Sandra Choi took inspiration from California and the sunny landscapes of Los Angeles, with the architecture of Frank Gehry and Richard Meier influencing her sculpted shapes. The novel "banana heel" was applied to much of the range, including these bright metallic, strappy sandals expressing the fun, futuristic, and architectural gestalt Choi sought for next season.
Combining the cut-out trend with one of SS16’s hottest colours, designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon bring Kenzo’s signature manipulation of shape to footwear. These over the knee patent white sandals are certainly eye catching summer shoes!
The gold of the affluent 12th century Venice featured throughout Vivienne Westwood’s SS16 collection. Like many other designers during fashion month, the platform sandal featured in the footwear line up, this time in a multi-strap deep gold version.
Feminine elegance is what Elie Saab is known and loved for and the SS16 collection didn’t stray from the designers roots. With layers of flowing lace paired with laser cut lace up sandals and flat gladiators Saab created a relaxed, graceful vibe.
