mirrored-heels.pngHow's this for a statement shoe? This opulent and unashamedly beautiful slingback style by Rochas is a heavy-soled wonder that will look amazing with the summer's laid back 70s glamour vibe. A 6.5-inch heel and 2-inch platform provide uplift, while the clever and unusual decoration provides masses of style.

The thick platform and tree-trunk heel have been decorated with a distressed cracked mirror surface that adds a touch of decadent, vintage charm and timeless appeal. We think it contrasts beautifully with the bleached-out white of the soft leather strap and slingback. The shoes look particularly awe-inspiring from the back, where the carefully cracked glass looks almost like silver birch trees in a forest.

This sort of clean-lined styling is getting to be more and more prominent as the season progresses, and we think these will be a massive high-summer hit for the well heeled.
