Given the heights they’ve reached in recent seasons, it is pretty clear that shoes do
not follow the stock market. This is probably a good thing, given that the biggest trend
in Milan was a flattening-out, a descent, a sinking from pinnacles never before seen – at least when it comes to heels. Yet when it comes to women and their
footwear, this is probably a good thing. Optionality is all, so while the stiletto still exists, so does the 70mm court shoe, the 50mm kitten heel – and the man’s brogue.
The choice of which is best belongs to she who wears them. When it comes to bags, however, it’s a different story; there, no choice is necessary.
Double duty is the theme of autumn/winter, be it a definition of form or function.
You’ll never have to think twice.
