Fashion & Shoe Designers Fall For Flats, Part II
So many flats are flooding the footwear marketplace that I just could not resist doing Part II to the previous post. I repeat…
It’s all over the fashion news with big, bold apparel industry headlines and interesting articles about the topic. Fashion designers are championing flats lately, says UK Daily Mail. Dolce and Gabbana and Armani sent models down the catwalk in flats, says another press release. And yet another flat out stated, “We’re all over high heels”.
Don’t throw them away or donate them to Goodwill just yet, but you might want to stick your stilettos in the back of the closet for awhile.
Here are some of the favorite styles making their way from the runway to the chic streets.
Slingback Flats. Footwear Design Name: Lucie. Retailer: J.Crew. Featuring the simplicity of a ballet flat with a colorful style, these shoes easily dress up or down. 5/8” heel in linen. $248.
