New York Fashion Week: Michael Kors shoes
As New York Fashion Week prepares to hand over the style baton to London, we've seen plenty of footwear pieces to inspire and delight. Michael Kors is a label that always grabs our attention as the shoes are always original and are a strong element in the designer's collections. This season's shows did not disappoint, and we are looking forward to seeing some of the shoes filtering through to UK stores.
The watchwords in this collection of shoes and boots were (as is often the case for Kors) "solid" and "substantial", with plenty of tree-trunk heels and thick soles giving the items a sculptural feel. There were built-up Mary Janes; some with black soles, others with metallic and lace-up boots with decorative slim straps around the trims. We could imagine wearing every piece of footwear here comfortably in our daily lives, yet all of them ooze cool urban style.
Colour was provided in the form of bold red and black snake print and later on, gold and silver metallics completed the collection with a more evening-focused look. But it was these Mary Janes, both the chunky heeled type on the left and the wedges on the right that stood out strongest for us.
