SO-NOW SLINGBACKSThe modest shoe silhouette makes a confident comeback
The retro shoe style that reigned supreme in the 50s makes a triumphant return – and with it comes an attention-commanding new attitude.
While Autumn Winter 2018 isn’t entirely without timeless iterations that’ll transcend seasons – see a classic two-tone take from Pedder Red – designers seem focused on dishing out souped-up versions that feel fresh and unexpected. Take Aquazzura’s fluff-trimmed creations, Rejina Pyo’s sculptural, stone-heeled styles, and Jacquemus’ mismatched geometric set as a case in point.
Perhaps our favourite slingbacks of all for the festive season? René Caovilla’s unapologetically opulent crystal-encrusted designs, which add a dash of grandeur to any cocktail hour affair.
