WITH THE COOL BREEZE DONNING ON THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE, WE'RE FRESHLY SUBLIMATED WITH THE RECENT FASHION MONTH FINALE AND ALREADY ANTICIPATING NEXT SEASON'S RAYS OF SUN THAT WILL ONCE AGAIN ALLOW OUR FEET TO BREATHE.
There is a chunky soled view on the horizon for Spring/Summer 2016 and the robust flats have been spotted on the runway, strapped in various proportions. Casual chic has infiltrated the streets and heels have taken a backseat to the ease of hitting the concrete in a heavy heeled flat. Worn with a counter intuitive mix of light layers of top, it is this silhouette that give the sandal its strength.
Versace has paired the sandals with sultry slits and the A-symmetrical cut of the camo print dress transitions the look from night to day. Kenzo took a lighter route on the sportier side of their gladiator strapped flat and Burberry Prorsum boldly augmented the weight of the sole with some gold chained hardware to slip into next summer. Stella McCartney added a slight lift to her heel with a printed wave that took a liking to the delicate camel strap. Chanel brought back the infamous sandal socked look, which in season's past would have been worn on the fly but with those printed pants, the ease comes back with passable comfort. Louis Vuitton veered toward punk with the laced skirt and black leather biker jacket. Worn on the tougher side of town, a chunky heeled flat calls in stability and a newly restored vitality - perfect for next season's city stomping.
