Givenchy is one of many labels planning to embrace all-things floral this winter: a brave strategy but perhaps a case of safety in numbers, as so many are pushing this look. The dark violet prints in this case were tempered with plenty of party-season friendly black patent, made up in classic styles with angular, pointed toes.

One detail we particularly love about this collection is the gold bangle-style ankle straps used to secure the shoes to the models' feet. They gave relief to some of the more sober styles and added a note of glamour to every style in the collection.
