One Must Have from Lanvin to Chanel: Metallic shoes


Metallic shoes will be one of the main trends of Spring/Summer 2015. Luminous flashes, special iridescence and leathers finished with shimmer characterise some of the most interesting offerings from the fashion world: there is not only gold, silver and bronze, but also vivid and brilliant shades of bright colours revisited in a metal key. The metallic and shimmer finish is undoubtedly among the most recurrent themes and is loved by insiders of the fashion world and the generai public, especially when it comes to the varied world of accessories. Having a pair of metallic shoes in your wardrobe gives you the opportunity to enhance any outfit at any time – even the simplest and most minimal outfits, with a super glamourous detail that gives new personality to the chosen look.
With a strong, contemporary and ultramodern appeal, which is almost futuristic, the metallic shoe trend was a big success in autumn/winter 2014-2015 and is also destined to play a leading role next season. There are plenty of suggestions from some of the most important brands in the fashion world that, naturally, exhibit very different patterns between them, perfectly in line with their own style and mood of their collections: the predominant shades are undoubtedly those of metals, such as gold, silver and bronze, but not forgetting either more vibrant colours, vivid and bright, revisited in a metal key. The two classics, gold and silver, characterise Fendi pumps, beautiful mules by Giuseppe Zanotti and decolletes by Lanvin, which are offered in reptile print. Naturally, the metallic shoe trend does not only cover the high heel designed for the evening: what about, for example, masculine inspired flat shoes created in gold by Chanel? That of the French fashion house is just one example, in which the bronze sandal slipper by Isabel Marant is also complemented, and the metallic silver slip on by Michael Kors and the silver trainers from the new spring/summer 2015 collection of Superga” (Stylosophy, February 2015)
