When London (fashion week) calls, we put everything else on hold and marvel at the sartorial splendour that the British runways have to offer. And it definitely was London-love at first sight with all the stunning shoes!

With “poetry groupie” as their muse, designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi fused romanticism with glam grunge. Black Victorian lace-up boots were the perfect punctuations to the moody floral dresses. Over-the-knee and ankle boots wrapped in bows are absolutely the most awesome presents to own this fall.

With a throwback to the seventies and twenties, you can expect lots of color –that’s for sure. Henry Holland dressed his models in punk-rock shoes ready to hit the dance floor. The disco-appropriate boots literally captured the vibrancy of the ultra-cool decades with shimmery metals matched with super-saturated orange and fuchsia, paired with cheetah and zebra prints.

Shoes were mini sculptures at the Anderson runway. The plethora of colors and textures turned the accessories into show stopping artworks. Kitten heel booties were sharp, and had a fun, modern twist with its translucent PVC and silver and black crystal-detailing. Our favorite would be the square-toed mules embellished with shiny multicolored scales.

When you’ve got sparkly, leg-baring dresses to wear, you’ll need the perfect shoes to showcase your pins. Take cue from the Macdonald runway and pair your thigh-skimming frocks with ladder-style, open-toe boots fastened with buckles, or simple yet ultra-chic ankle-strap stilettos in that neutral nude hue we absolutely adore.

If moto jackets are the hottest toppers this season, Christopher Bailey created the most fitting “moto boot” to complement them with. The edgy boots with a low-heel carried a statement-making pilgrim buckle that accented the python print. Other boot details include brocade, studs and kilties.

The femme fatale who is dressed in a neck collar and velvet bodice with corset lacing will off course need a pair of bondage boots. Case in point: Pointy booties with side cut-outs and an ankle strap, or boots with high-shine leather and side buckles will help unleash your inner dominatrix.

Expect to fashionably embrace your femininity this fall courtesy of Sarah Burton. Ankle-strap stilettos lined with fur, and sandals adorned with crystals and ostrich feathers that gracefully billowed down the runway will make all of us a little bit more flirtatious in the fall.

Johnny Coca presented a very hip alternative to fall footwear. If ballet slippers were to get a hefty dose of heel, then you’ve got these Mulberry platform heels with punchy, yellow and orange supersized satin lacing. Mid-calf boots also with platform heels were color-blocked in black, white or maroon, and proved to be sleek, modern and very wearable too.

About the author: Romina Tobias is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. She thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more). 

Nicole-Kidman-Christian Louboutin Vampanodo sandals-Emmy-Awards

Nicole Kidman wore Christian Louboutin Vampanodo sandals to the 2012 Emmy Awards. These heels are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring a teal satin bow. You can find the Vampanodo online in teal & black at Christian Louboutin US and with a platform in purple satin at Neiman Marcus & Bergdorf Goodman.

She’s also wearing a blue sequin embroidered Antonio Berardi dress with Fred Leighton earrings. I like the shoes and dress separately but not together. I prefer a more blue sandal, something like these Manolo Blahnik sandals. Check out more shoes spotted at the Emmys.

Manolo didn’t have as many collaborations in London as he did in New York, I count 5 total including the flat sandals he designed for Richard Nicoll. I always look forward to the Antonio Berardi collaboration and this time we saw blue & tan leather strappy heels.

I wasn’t crazy about Louboutin’s designs at NYFW since many of them were styles seen from previous collections, however, London was another story! My favorite shoes are the heels seen on Mary Katrantzou’s runway. We did see one style, the Crazy Fur pump, which debuted in the Fall/Winter 2012 collection redesigned into lighter colors for Spring in Michael van der Ham’s collection.

Nicholas Kirkwood
You never know what to expect from Kirkwood’s collaborations, the designs are always so different every season. For Spring 2013 he created a chunky t-strap platform for Erdem featuring metallic leather, python and floral print. The Peter Pilotto sandals have received a lot of attention and were named ‘Accessory of the Day’ on WWD. He mixed digital baroque-style prints with black & white woven leather, patent leather and completely beaded laces.

Kirkwood’s heels were also seen on the Jean Pierre-Braganza runway along with Alejandro Ingelmo.

This season Charlotte Olympia designed the Serena sandal in many different colors & textures for the Temperley London Spring 2013 collection. We first saw this sandal in Olympia’s Spring 2012 Siren collection. You can find the Serena available in white satin from the Runaway Bride collection online at Charlotte Olympia.

How cute! The printed floral printed silk reminds me of Tabitha Simmons’ designs. These sandals feature small flower studs, leather edges and a flower buckle.
