Fashion month is coming to a close and I thought now would be a good time to look back on another trend that surfaced through the endless shows and presentations. The shoes we have been seeing on the runways of Mary Kantrantzou to Ralph Lauren are vintage inspired from the patterns they exhibit to the textures they emulate. Above are some examples from the AW16 shows which could have easily been from the 70s and 80s . The high heel and sock is a classic 80s beauty, and the quadruple strap mixed with snakeskin is an epic nod to the 70s, and the days of disco.
Again, here we see the boot transformed almost to another era. The shiny pattens and prints point to the days of Twiggy and Norman parkinson. Erdem and Proenza Schouloer were the frontrunners this season for the vintage boot. The patent leather used to transport the audience to the 70s was matched impeccably with the collections and as a whole was pulled off to massive proportions. This trend has been very substantial this month and I honestly hope to see more of it. I am a sucker for vintage and everything alike so it is no surprise that I have fallen for these looks. Have a beautiful (fashion) week
