Something for the Weekend: Mulberry gem shoes
We adore Mulberry's footwear: wonderful echos of their current handbag collections, seamlessly translated into shoes. There is a big emphasis on dark suedes and harlequin coloured gemstones across the range at the moment, and we think it works just as well on these classic heeled pumps as it does on the Lily shoulder bag. You could absolutely rock a cocktail dress in these shoes, and I'll be those stones are super-sparkly.
The 'gem' shoes are available at £425 from Net-a-Porter, alongside some of Mulberry's key pieces for spring/summer 2012. Although they look a little bit purple here, don't be fooled: the shoes are actually a midnight blue suede, making them quite suitable for the summer and its obsession with blue footwear and shimmering colour. It's a bit more of a girly take on these attributes than we've seen at Christian Louboutin et. al, but we're sure fans of Mulberry will be suitably impressed.
