Once Christmas and New Year’s Eve are behind us, the beginning of the year can feel a little dreary. However, February is on its way to shake things up and delight us with all of the fashion-world’s latest offerings. The second month of 2018 hails in the month of fashion that we’ve all been waiting for! It’s about to be Fashion Week across the globe, so we’re ready and waiting to see what gorgeous creations hit our favourite capitals.
London will always have a special place in our hearts, being home to our flagship store. The city kicks off one of the biggest fashion events of the year, with London Fashion Week taking place between February 16th-20th, before the fashionistas head over to beautiful Milan for 21st-27thand then ultra-chic Paris from 27thto March 7th. It’s going to be week after week of couture, culture and plenty of celebrations.
We’re extra excited about LFW this year, because of the Positive Fashion Initiative, a pledge that the British Fashion Council made in 2017 to ensure best practices in the fashion industry, and make the industry a more positive place to be. The initiative looks at sustainability in supply chains for fashion houses, encourages local craftmanship, and (perhaps) most importantly celebrates model health and diversity.
If you’re heading to an event at one of February or March’s Fashion Weeks, or perhaps you’re just going to be in one of these cities when Fashion Week is taking place, it’s the perfect time to make a fashion statement of your own. No fashion-week worthy outfit is complete without the right shoes, so to help you with some shoe inspiration, we’ve put together some of our most statement heels and flats that’ll be sure to get you noticed!
Cilla Jet for a Classical Show
For a sophisticated statement at a more classic and elegant fashion show, pop on a pair of our Cilla Jetheels – combined with cigarette pants and a tucked-in floaty blouse for ultimate elegance. In the blackest of black kid suede with gold metallic leather details and teardrop cutouts, these heels are a favourite of ours. They’re smart and sassy; a great all-round shoe to get you through Fashion Week in style. The high-quality materials also make them super comfortable, so you can be on your feet all day without so much as a blister!
Isadora to View a Whimsical Spring Collection
We recommend that everyone takes a moment to stop what they’re doing and take a look at our Isadora heels. Aren’t they beautiful? Inspired by our very own Chelsea Flower Show, these floral-illusion pointed court shoes were designed for a bride, but can easily work at the front row of a fashion show, too. In a soft blush hue with hand-beaded florals, these heels are the perfect accompaniment to a pastel spring dress.
Beatrice to Stand Out on the FROW
If you want to really stand out from the crowd this Fashion Week, we have the shoe for you. Our Beatrice heel in a bold lipstick red suede will certainly have everyone falling at your feet! With intricate gold leather straps, Swarovski crystal buckles, and mother of pearl shell beading, these heels are head turners that will get you noticed at any fashion show or after party.
Carrie to Walk Home in Style
If you’re jumping on the tube or walking between shows, then slip off your heels, and slip on a pair of Carries. Our Carrie pumps are your perfect choice for the quieter moments of Fashion Week. Elegant, sophisticated and stylish; these pumps add a muted elegance to any outfit. With intricate beading using Swarovski crystals, silver beads and pearl sequins, these shoes come in a supple ivory kid suede and incorporate metallic gold leather detailing. Pair with ankle grazer jeans, a simple trench coat and a micro crossbody bag for the ultimate off-duty look.
If you do happen to head to any of this season’s Fashion Weeks in a pair of our gorgeous heels or stylish flats be sure to send us a picture of your finished look or tag us on Instagram – we’d love to see all of you looking beautiful in our creations!
