As Paris Fashion Week draws to a close, signalling the end of an exciting Fashion Month, we reflect upon what the most influential design houses in the world are citing as the key trends for AW 2020. With Helena Christensen making a surprise appearance on the Balmain runway, Yolanda Hadid joining her supermodel daughters on the Off-White catwalk and face masks becoming the ‘it’ accessory, it was most definitely a #PFW to be remembered. Add the Parisian catwalk style straight into your wardrobe with our on-trend collections of shoes and boots.
It was all about slouch at the Isabel Marant show, who showcased her oversized, cinched in silhouettes with voluminous slouch boots in a variety of lengths, heights and neutral shades. Perfect either over fitted trousers or under floating hemlines, the slouch boot is most definitely making a comeback. The Rieker Slouch Fit Knee High Boot taps into the trend with ease, giving you effortless I’ve-just-thrown-this-together style. For an accessible office update, add the Suede Slouch Ankle Boot to your weekday rotations, giving the trust ankle boot the on-trend slouch update.
It was thick, chunky soles that stole the show on the Chloe runway. Set to a background of heritage-inspired checks, floating silhouette dresses and flared denim, every look incorporated a chunky sole underfoot. Loafers, monk strap shoes and combat boots all got the heavyset treatment giving a cool-girl edge to classic styles. Make like Chloe and toughen up your office style by pairing the Simone Patent Penny Loafer with sharp tailoring, or lend your floral midi dresses a tough edge with the Leather Lace-Up Combat Boot or the Leather Lace-Up Hiker Boot.
Loewe saw 1950s inspired ladylike chic get a glamorous update. Pointed kitten-heel Mary-janes and streamlined low-cut ankle boots were adorned with beautiful intricately embellished floral motifs. Delicate cross straps create an elegant and streamlined silhouette, contrasted by the oversized shoe jewellery. To recreate this ladylike chic, our Pointed Heeled Mary Jane Mule emulates the streamlined and elegant silhouette, contrasted with pastel stripes. However, if it is the touch of sparkle that caught your eye, try the Embellished Flat Mules for an instantly captivating look.
British fashion house Mulberry saw a tough-love approach to combat boots. Topping stalwart silhouettes with elegant metallic toecaps, these lace-up boots mean business. Effortlessly balanced with epitomally British checks in swirling midi skirts and blazers, tough has never looked so chic. Let Dulcie update your casual stylings with its combination of contemporary bungee lacing and patent toe cap or add a touch of metallic glamour with Eloise.
