Our tour of the fashion capitals of the world continues. Next stop? Milan! Let’s take a closer look at our favorite Italian exports –nope, not the best-tasting pizza or the creamiest gelato there is –but shoes, of course! Whet your sartorial appetite with these shoes that are just, bellisima.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Dolce-Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana
Disney Princess wannabee? Dolce & Gabanna’s whimsical heels will make your fairy tale dreams come true. Metallic t-strap pumps were embellished with glitter, multicolored flowers and furry pompoms. PVC pumps were reminiscent of Cinderella’s glass slippers –you’d never want to leave a shoe behind, that’s for sure –midnight curfew or not.

Furry footwear also tickled the Ferragamo runway. Fur trim adorned the ankle strap on an otherwise classic, muted satin sandal. Toe caps of block-heeled pumps also got the furry treatment, giving the chic footwear the cozy touch of bathroom slippers. Zigzag-patterned lizard skin and suede booties and knee-highs were also playful and edgy additions to the flirty footwear collection.

Stilettos stole the show with its super ornate embellishments –tassels, cord lacing, beadwork, badges, ruffles, belts, straps and buckles were the perfect details to match the military mood of the edgy Victorian coats and Sargent jackets.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Prada
Prada
The Prada woman for fall is a traveller who treks, hikes and explores in style. Her nomadic footwear consists of lace-ups with wedge heels, multicolored laces and nautical detailing. Her Prada pilgrimage will continue with glossy patents and color-blocked leathers, adorned with golden buckles.

Now you can wear a pair of snakeskin platform boots for almost everyday of the week. The go-go boots came in a plethora of colors –black, gold, purple, blue and green –all snag-worthy for the glam-rock chicks out there.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fendi

Cropped and over-the-knee boots weren’t shy of details –the leg covering footwear were heavily dressed up in ruffled leather, scaling, garters and tapered heels. These beauties had an eye-catching color palette too, from cotton candy hues to super bold shades that would light up the streets in the fall.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fausto-Puglisi

With Madonna mash-ups playing the background, you can definitely expect a show that is equal parts sexy, rebellious and edgy. Stomp-worthy combat boots were bedecked with studs and colorblocked with blue or green covering. Cowboy boots were studded and buckled –super sexy when paired with short skirts. Then there’s that pair of metallic gladiator boots that are extremely feminine, fierce and totally hot!

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Gucci
Gucci
Alessandro Michele described his dreamy collection as an ode to, as he said, “some of my passions” –the Seventies, The Renaissance and Street Style were celebrated through platform wedges paired with lustrous hosiery. Horse-bit loafers got a fun makeover and were spruced up with a pointed toe and block heels, while your classic round-toe Mary Janes turned into entrancing accessories with its optical illusion print.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Versace
Versace
It was a kitten heel parade. Leather ankle booties, got the modest-heel treatment, while pointy pumps already came with zipped up socks for a cosy touch. Ankle strap pumps got a little bit more height and color too. Our favorite? The fluorescent yellow capped stilettos with coral ankle straps.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Marni

Consuelo Castiglioni obviously likes to experiment with conceptual forms. Pointy pumps in high-shine neutrals featured wooden wedges with gold trimming –the shoes were like wearable pieces of furniture. Tall boots were also given added lift by wooden orbs, while other pumps were elegantly accented with curved, swirly-shaped wooden heels.

About the author: Zenzhu is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. He 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). 

Sophia-Webster-quote-Fall-2014When we think of Sophia Webster, we think of sass. Pure, unadulterated, and heartfelt sass; in fact, we’re pretty sure that if you looked up “feisty” in the sartorial dictionary, a pair of her thin-heeled ankle-strap sandals would be pictured. For her Pre-Fall and Fall 2014 collections, Sophia takes a morose theme (“Heartbreak Hotel”) and turns it into something utterly charming and vibrant. Who needs love when you can buy shoes?

The shoes themselves would be at home in Barbie’s Dreamhouse or on the toes of one of the many girl power popgroups of the ‘90s. Metallic houndstooth, fringe, gaudy faux jewels, and vivid colors were just the start of the Cher Horowitz Heartbreak influence, the saturated over-the-top theme is threaded through both the collections. Fur-embellished mules and sandals collide with laser-cut gladiator over-the-knee boots making for a host of statement making shoes that would turn heads in any scenario. No boyfriend? No problem! These darling heels are sure to add enough sweetness to your wardrobe for an eternity – or, at least, until next season.

Leopard prints, rounded stacked ball heels, and cartoonish embellishments (paisley, hearts, and flamingos!) add an innocent streak through the collection, rounded out by the deviously high stiletto points and edgy addition of vinyl. In terms of silhouettes, we can always count on her to release a balanced collection of thick-soled vintage-inspired designs with pinpoint stilettos – though this time, she also included a couple sneakers and flat-soled sandals. One thing we love about Sophia is her ability to incorporate popular trends into her shoes without them losing her je ne sais quoi. She’s readily embraced the sportswear trend of recent seasons but unlike other designers, the confectionary color of the rubber treads and lace-up styles feel fresh, unique, and playful.

This collection has been hailed as another golden star in Sophia Webster’s impressive catalogue. After scooping up the Emerging Accessories Designer at the British Fashion Awards and landing a Fashion Forward sponsorship, she has become a veritable fashion train that is on the fast track to British design royalty. We’re excited to see where she takes her candy colored fairytale world – if it’s anything like this collection, we know we’ll be head over heels (Heartbreak Hotel not needed!).

You can find select styles from both of these collection now on pre-order at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Kylie Minogue was spotted wearing Dolce & Gabbana boots to the new Bond Street store opening party in London. This classic boot features an almond toe, soft black suede and chunky heel. You can find a similar style boot (on sale!) in black leather at Farfetch.

She left the event wearing Dolce & Gabbana head-to-toe including a stretch silk charmeuse polka dot mini dress with angel sleeves, black scalloped lace lining  and round neck from the Spring 2014 collection. Kylie also accessorized with a large gold plated metal coin belt as seen with the dress on the runway.

She finished her look with a Miss Sicily embroidered black leather bag.
