Footwear has been on the back foot of late as the global lockdown impacted the ‘going-out’ paradigm and casualness has created more need for slippers than heels. That being said the reliance on streewear sneakers as designers go-to of the last few seasons has faded as designer embraced new forms of casual.
Hermès couple their collection with footwear than hasn’t made its mark on the catwalks of late, craftsman clogs. Chanel found casual solace in an old reliable, the penny loafer. Soft quilted slides were to be found at Gauchere while Louis Vuitton showed quilted down booties.
No heels didn’t go away, Donatella Versace is after all still rocking and Riccardo Tisci too opted for tall heeled boots. Fendi embraced heels in mesh and Paul Andrew updated the heel at Salvatore Ferragamo.
