Thanks to internet and social media, consumption frenzy is rising rapidly. Newest is not a concept anymore. The new grows obsolete in minutes. While fashion magazines are writing about the new trends of the season, we are all talking about the coming trends of the next season in social media, thus articles prepared by their enthusiasm, do not create the same effect upon us- certainly, except editorial images.
I, personally, read with pleasure every month but not to learn the new, to remember the new- generally my response is like ‘wow, this also exists’. More importantly, I am interested in how they combined the brands or what kind of story-telling they use to reflect the trends in editorials.
Anyone , fashion related knows about the blogs. Even the editors have blogs. Namely, we have already read about the prominent trends of upcoming season. So I look over next winter shoe trends by saying ‘ summer trends stay in summer’.
It is a season that we shoul be open to new. Wait. First things first. Sneaker craze is perminant. Yay! Max Mara, J.W.Anderson, Simone Rocha, Antonio Marras and Givenchy pre-fall is totally onto sneakers and loafers.
Over the knee boots are having the most popular season but with renewals. Reed Krakoff uses white soles. It is better to get used to shoe socks. Chanel, Celine, Alexander McQueen stand out with over the knee models where Valentino and Missoni stay beneath with booties. While Prada is helping to prepare ourselves to this image with her spring collection, designers have already implicated it to fashion world. Chanel’s leather sock shaped shoes extending over-knee, is a proof that we should adopt this trend. Alexander McQueen adds a different style to Elizabethan look with sock shaped shoes which is netted with pearl by being inspired from tudor dynasty.
Architectural structures are dominant in heels as in Alexandre Birman, Pierre Hardy and Dior. Not only the heels, we see in Balenciaga the marble patterns on flipointed shoes. Flip-flop and pointed toe merges to form flipointed.
Geometric designs continue to optic illusion over shoes as striped ones in Givency, checked ones in Aquazurra.
It is cold outside so the winter shoes must wear sweaters as in Alexander Wang or must be covered with fur as in Fendi.
Prada, Miu Miu, Carven and Stella McCartney adopt the principle of, to protect the feet from cold start with the sole. By sole I mean tyre sole.
Which one is your favorite?
