The Trendy Designer Edit

-The “IT” shoe that is.

The Row, Ginza Leather Suede Platform Flip Flops

The Row’s Mary-Kate and Ashely Olsen understand that busy lifestyles call for practical yet stylish shoes, like these ‘Ginza’ flip flops. They’ve been made in Italy from smooth leather and suede and have cushioned insoles so you can comfortably wear them all day. Styling them with anything from suiting to dresses and everyday looks. They’re such versatile shoes to have and really go with anything. They’re a designer must-have in my books.

The Row, Gaia Woven Leather Sandals

Scrolling through The Row’s mood-board and you’ll quickly see how the labels pieces are influenced by minimal interiors, art and sculpture. Expertly woven in Italy from panels of smooth black leather, these “Gaia” sandals give a nod of traditional fisherman styles. Set on chunky soles, they’re ideal for running errands, between meetings and gallery exhibitions.

Bottega Veneta, Quilted Leather Mules

Bottega Veneta was a big winner at the fashion awards 2019, mainly for the fresh way in which Daniel Lee is approaching the house’s codes. Part of the Resort 2020 collection these mules have been made in Italy from black leather that’s quilted to resemble the signature intrecciato technique. They’re set on slim hurl and have an exaggerated square toe.

The cult appeal of Bottega Veneta’s shoes was one of the big topics discussion during fashion month. Made in Italy from a buttery beige leather this pair has artfully woven quilted straps, a re-imagined take on the house’s iconic intrecciato technique. The soft padded soles mean they’ll serve you well through evening parties and events.

Magda Butrym, Sweden Leather Sandals

The leather ‘Sweden’ sandals are designed with barely there straps and 90s – inspired square toes. They have fluted 80mm heels (the chunky kind) that are very comfortable enough for the hours upon hours of wear you’ll get out of them.
