Best Shoes Spring-Summer 2018
Not coincidentally specialists say that namely footwear make a woman what it really is. A pair of shoes can say about the owner much more than she wanted to show, fact will be taken into account when purchasing a new pair. With the help of fashion shoes, ladies have the opportunity to express their social status, lifestyle, position or simply their mood. What kind of shoes urges us designers to acquire in the new spring-summer 2018 season?
Shoes with laces and knots
Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Altuzarra, Derek Lam have once again demonstrated that knots and shoelaces look stylish, modern and incredibly attractive. To convince us of this, it is enough to look at new designs offered by brands, provided with braids that have both a practical as well as aesthetic role. These items are suitable for any shoes type – from standard flats to mules (high heeled shoes without back).
Celine, Christian Dior, Giles, Erdem continued the fashion on pointed toe. If previously such designs were considered extremely aggressive, then now they can be worn even at work. The narrow tip looks good on black leather stiletto shoes, as well as on patent leather “Mary Jane”. A great match will be the combination of pointed toe with brilliant large buckles, which are often used in belts for men.
Flat sole shoes
If you are among those who actively follow the fashion trends, then you probably already know that several consecutive seasons, designers rely on practicality and convenience. This does not mean that from now on shoes do not have to look chic, but it means that from year to year, in the collections of famous brands increasingly are seen shoes with flat soles. For example, Burberry Prorsum launched a line of loafer with playful tassels, Calvin Klein has started to love colorful or black loafers, made in grunge or romantic style.
Derek Lam, Miu Miu, Lanvin embellished their footwear lines with leather and textile flats and pointe, which gives the impression that a lady just left the dance class forgetting to take off her shoes.
Dolce & Gabbana has dressed the models in sandals with rich decorative elements.
Heelless versions of shoes for spring-summer 2018 were presented also by world famous brands such as Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Celine, Rag and Bone, Marc Jacobs, Kenzo, Derek Lam, Christian Dior, in the collections of which were observed derby, sneakers , oxfords and other similar designs. Such shoes can be executed in classic feminine style as well as in masculine version. We could say that “male character” no longer frightens modern ladies. On the contrary, androgynous and unisex styles are becoming more popular every year.
Best stiletto shoes Spring-Summer 2018
As you know, the laws of classic fashion are immutable and firm and this does not only mean that traditional stiletto shoes were so popular when they first appeared, but also the fact that these are popular nowadays as well. We will not talk about sober common designs. They have not had nor will have no rival. We’ll talk about some frivolities allowed by designers to design these shoes. Take as an example the Dolce & Gabbana collection, where we can see very original stiletto shoe designs. Two factors stood at the basis: semitransparent fabrics with and monochromatic toe with elegant embroidery. At first glance, we feel that shoes are shod over stockings, but if we look closely, we can see that socks are a continuation of shoes, turning them into a kind of boots.
Oscar Renta has also pleased his female fans including in his lines colored shoe designs, which surface reminds us of a fine lace.
Backless shoes can have the most varied name. As a rule, these are known as “mule”, although if we speak about stiletto with the open back, then in this case we’ll speak about “pump slingback”. Whatever name you give your favorite pair of shoes; these designs are missing the back side. Choosing such shoes, especially stilettos, you must be very careful in terms of matching them with other elements of the outfit. For example, they will look very elegant with dresses in new look style or with light summer business style outfits. Short skirts and skinny jeans will do nothing but ruin the charm of shoes. Backless shoes recommend us to wear Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin.
Shoes with contrasting toe
Toes which are different from the rest of shoes by color or texture are longer in such a great demand as in previous seasons. However, this does not mean that they are no longer in fashion, as demonstrated by brands such as Giorgio Armani, Christian Dior, Lanvin and several others.
Original shapes of heels are not rushing to leave the fashion collections. On the contrary, designers gave these more incredible shapes and lines. Fendi, Rodarte, Mary Katrantzou again enjoyed the fans with exotic-convex curved lines and intricate metal designs. Dolce & Gabbana used for this purpose golden cubes, which remind us of Greek columns, making shoes look really pathetic and grotesque.
The brands were not limited only to original heels. To give their creations memorable shapes, designers have experimented with the general characteristics of shoes, adding them most unimaginable sectioning and decor. The result can be seen in the collections of Prada, Maison Margiela, Dries van Noten.
Rich decorative elements
The 2018 spring-summer season is designed exclusively for bold and memorable ideas. This is the perfect time when fashionistas can gracefully step on the streets wearing shoes beautifully decorated with various decorative elements. The enormous amount of decorative elements offered by the fashion industry has made each decorated pair to look original and incredibly interesting. For example, Lanvin proposes to wear colored sequined shoes, Marc Jacobs decorated his shoe designs with rhinestones, pearls, applied stars, braids, beads and chains, Dolce & Gabbana has remained faithful to its principles opting for wonderful “Mary Jane” shoes with small fur pompoms, jewelry applications, embroidery, flowers.
Oscar de la Renta also enjoyed his admirers because in the collections were included fine stiletto shoes with artificial carnations and lace.
Prints and colors
Designers have proven to be original also in the choice of fashionable colors. There were used the most varied colors and shades, beginning with proven achromatic and ending with bright compositions. If we talk about images that decorate fashionable shoes, then these also proved to be very surprising. The shoes were embellished with stars, chaotic artistic doodles, stripes, and other geometric shapes. All the various range of fashionable colors can be seen in Lanvin, Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani lines.
Each woman and girl will be able to choose the desired pair of shoes thanks to the varied range of shoes designs. Fashion brands took care of all tastes and preferences, starting with classic stiletto shoes and ending with original ultramodern designs.
