Sandals are the most popular type of footwear in the summer season. Due the vast assortment, these harmonize with absolutely any type of clothing, starting with the beach veil and ending with a luxurious evening dress. In addition, experienced fashionistas can successfully match sandals with the business, casual, grunge and even sport style. Let’s see what sandals designs brands pleased us with in the new spring-summer 2018 season. What designs will adorn female legs in the coming hot season?
Straps and belts
Bulky and brutal belts and buckles were housed for a while in the female wardrobe. And women are not worried about the fact that initially, these details were considered exclusively men’s accessories. From now on, they are used with confidence to decorelementsate garments and footwear, as evidenced by the collections of Michael Kors, Versace and other brands. As we see, designers have long way established that femininity can be coupled with brutality.
The unusual heel reached its peak of popularity since the previous summer. However, this trend does not hurry to leave the fashion catwalks and unusual heels are seen more often in fashion shows. Most often can be found heels with curves inside and outside, heels decorelementsated with rhinestones, sequins and rhinestones and patterns that resemble metal cosntructions and geometric figures. Examples can be seen at Thakoon, Valentino, Mary Katrantzou, Dolce & Gabbana, Giambattista Valli, Dries Van Noten, Alexander McQueen.
Designers were not limited to the original forms of heels and refined décor elements. While some designers have tended to highlight this part of the shoe, others on the contrary, wanted to hide it. And this has been possible through the use of transparent materials. Shoes with transparent heels look really unique, which will surely be appreciated by fashionistas who like to experiment with their look. Some brands found that other parts of sandals can become “invisible”. How exactly, see at Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, Jonathan Saunders, Loewe.
Stiletto heeled sandals
The tall thin heel, also called stiletto heel, became for some time an element of classics. This best highlight the feminine seductivity and gracefulness. You will not find anywhere in the world man who remains indifferent when he sees beautiful legs wearing stiletto heel sandals. Certainly, these are considered particularly seductive and often are worn by ladies going to the romantic dates. In the new warm season, fashionistas will go to dates wearing sandals made by Nina Ricci, Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani.
Shoelaces, twisted cords and knots
It seems that in 2018 spring-summer season, fashionistas will not have time for boredom because the mind will be occupied with thoughts about how quickly to tie the numerous cords and shoelaces on sandals created by designers. They may be of different colors, from classic pastel shades to cool bright colors (Balmain, Chloe, Nina Ricci). Models with twisted cords and knots can be both on high heels and on flat soles.
Modern sole and platform
Some experiences have come to platforms as well. For example, Ralph Lauren took care of all fashionistas with low stature, putting at their disposal luxurious not too high cork platform sandals. Shoes on high platform proposed Dries Van Noten, Michael Kors. In the last mentioned collections we can see flat medium height platforms, which the brand decorelementsated with fashionable prints and woven surface. Kenzo and Stella McCartney line of shoes was completed with thick soles (creepers), while Louis Vuitton and Rag and Bone opted for low platforms. Stella McCartney has revealed her vision of modern interpretation of traditional Japanese footwear.
The décor elements in abundance do not impress anyone anymore. The ladies, who know all fashion matters, know also very well all the tricks of modern decoration that designers often put in place to create its collections of shoes. For instance, Dries Van Noten and Alexander McQueen have decorated the sandals with elegant embroidery, Dolce & Gabbana – wonderful stones, fur pompoms, sequins and prints. Marc Jacobs has seen fit to decorate their creations with silver crystal and not too big sized stones, which make them look like a fairytale story. Emilio Pucci has not opted for bright and colorful décor elements – it has opted for original lines placed at the top of sandals and huge pearls. Gucci has amazed the fans with impressive rivets that virtually decorated the entire surface of the footwear.
If in the fall-winter seasons the most requested material was the classic black leather, then for the warm period, this tradition is no longer current. Certainly, in spring-summer season 2018 we can also see a tremendous amount of leather sandals, but, typically, for this purpose is used the colored leather in modern shades. In addition, in the collections quite often can be seen suede textiles, perforated fabrics, rubber, cork and even fur, which is also used as décor (Emilio Pucci, Dries Van Noten, Burberry Prorsum to) We can say with confidence that in the 2018 warm period designers approved the use of any material and fabrics.
