Platforms make a comeback in keeping with fashion’s love affair with the 1970s. Salvatore Ferragamo features the “sandwich” platform wedge while the clog is also in the mix as seen as Gucci. The gladiator style features in the new season’s collection for Vince Camuto and Nine West with the laced ankle stiletto adding a touch of drama.
Trainers have edged towards a simpler, cleaner line or colour blocked while espadrilles and skaters are particularly prominent. Colours range from bright to pastels to metallics mixed with classic white. Touches of denim and floral prints are also in the mix.
