Let’s talk shoes. Seriously HOT shoes. Chris, our Footwear Buyer, takes us through the spring styles you need to know, all exclusively available in sizes 9-15. Dressing from the ground up has never looked better.
1. THE SPRING RE-BOOT.
‘We took our cue from the Balenciaga, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Loewe SS17 shows which all featured springtime boots, from ankle to calf to knee high. Think of it as "warm weather leather”. We LOVE a practical trend!'
2. ALL WRAPPED UP.
‘This season, it’s all eyes on the ankle. The SS17 runways were awash with ankle lacing, from statement ribbons at Dries Van Noten to spaghetti straps at Jason Wu. We’ve interpreted the trend with really versatile lacing for tying at ankle height or calf height. And the best bit? Ankle lacing draws the eye upwards, so it’s incredibly flattering on the larger foot.’

3. HEAVENLY HEELS.
'From kitten heels at Celine to block heels at Carven, SS17’s heels are spotlight-worthy. Each of our heels is exclusively designed to visually ‘shorten’ the foot. Our footwear designers work miracles with strategically placed straps and adjusted vamp depth.'
4. THE ART OF LOAFING.
‘The two anchor colours of our SS17 collection, blush and navy, are accented by our statement silver Meg Snaffle. For inspiration, look no further than Mugler whose silver loafer is almost identical.’

5. STATEMENT SNEAKS.
'In 2017 athleisure gets distinctly streamlined with a modern update that’s reflected in our new season trainer edit. With a nod to Celine, the styling is clean and sharp. Perfect with cigarette pants, cropped denims and cuffed joggers.’
