Walk This Way: Essential Shoes for Spring


We present the three types of shoes that are essential for occasion style, off-duty dressing and all the events in between for SS18.

Skin-baring attire becomes the norm once spring makes its arrival. As coats that cocoon are replaced with lightweight options and you begin to shed your winter layers, the same rule should be applied to your footwear.

Shoes that reveal flashes of skin in noteworthy finishes are the new agenda. With skin-baring shoes, you can welcome in the new season with all sets of eyes firmly on your footwear. Wave goodbye to ankle boots and closed toe sandals for the time ahead. This season, dressing from the feet up is a rule that shouldn’t be stepped over.


Slides are an obvious choice during the sunnier period and this season, we’ve added intricate detailing to ensure that they stand out.


Reinvented for the current season, the Orchid slides are an elevated take on a classic flat. Available in two colours – a rich sage-green hue and an opulent gold-tone – the slides are set to become a go-to for understated nonchalance. Embellished with silver-tone and rose-gold tone crystals, a riff on a traditional style that exudes summertime cool, the slides pair incredibly well with denim and wide-leg styles complete with louche shirting and tops for weekend adventures.

Mules - The New Season Refresh

With their ability to match off-duty outfits and promise a sartorial boost to sophisticated looks too, the mule’s beauty lies in its versatility.


With a grown-up V-shaped front, the Catalina is a serious shape to consider for a luxury alternative to heeled styles. Combining the backless design with a springtime appropriate plush suede finish, the slick shape delicately contours around your foot allowing for an easy throw-on-and-go feel. Available in two must-have shades – classic black and light blue for a softer take – the Catalina mules lend well to polished casual looks that require height. Wear with cropped denim, undone tailoring and silken separates for a sumptuous mix-match of opulent fabrics.


Proving just how versatile the mule is, the Molly is a must-have for occasion dressing. The soft-to-touch satin pair allude to ladylike luxe thanks to the powder-pink colour palette and a half-bow front, while a peep toe carries the mule into the new season. Wear yours with feminine dresses in pink hues for a tone-on-tone colour payoff or twin with contrasting separates for an emphasis on the shoes. For a traditional take on the Molly, opt for the open toe Vicky sandals. They share the same satin finish and striking bow detail, but are finished in a neutral grey hue allowing for multiple styling options.


A springtime riff on the classic court, the slingback design exudes a business at the front, party at the back mood that injects a sense of panache into any ensemble.


Every woman needs a statement shoe in her arsenal and the Ivy Print is a strong contender. Finished in a poppy-red hue and detailed with a textured snake-effect design all-over, the arresting pair catapult any outfit into serious style territory while ensuring you stay cool this spring. Wear with toned-down separates to keep all eyes on the shoes. Prefer a simpler alternative? The Ivy shoes are available free from print in other colour options too.


With a slightly more vertiginous heel, the Clara is another slingback that is set to soar this season. A suede fabrication complete with mesh inserts keeps these slingbacks current and will take you smoothly from day-to-night with ease. For a contemporary take on the work wardrobe, twin with statement suiting and streamlined separates.
