Seen on the runway
'More is more', according to 3.1 Phillip Lim and Christian Wijnants, who drew attention to the lower part of their runway silhouettes by having models parade on robust flatform sandals in black or white leather, wide straps firmly wrapping foot and ankle. In sharp contrast with other designers such as Chloé, who once again took the graceful path and proved its love for revealing, dainty straps to finish off the ever so feminine summer attire. Isabel Marant, clearly the light of the summer party, spices things up by throwing metallics in the mix and creating a range of sandals in a supple wrapped metallic fabric, tied in a side knot for an ultra-casual feel.
Like Joseph, Stella McCartney introduced the brown textured leather sandal as the coolest kid in the class for spring/summer 2017. Customised with cut-outs, this long-known classic with a slightly masculine feel is now officially reinvented and ready to take your slouchy, laid-back summer look to a new high.
