Trend week is upon us, and to little shock, footwear has remained fertile floor for frolicsome experimentation. (Though bizarre and wild suiting is definitely gaining floor.) In every single place you look, it is exhausting to overlook the footwear: from Prada’s futuristic fare to JW Anderson’s childlike clogs, and the covetable kicks of Wales Bonner and Our Legacy, the runways are chock-full of footwear that may finally trickle out into the actual world. Fortunately, it seems to be like we’re in for a enjoyable 12 months of footwear.
At Prada, the dream group of Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada continues to thrill. They confirmed the same old suspects—the Italian label’s polished derby footwear and loafers with ultra-chunky soles—together with a brand new child on the block: an eye-grabbing moc toe with exaggerated seams and a sporty outer sole. The silhouette makes appearances as a gown shoe and sneaker, relying on the only and supplies. (It is exhausting to take a look at the layered sole and never consider the Balenciaga Triple S sneaker or Simons’ personal Adidas Ozweego.)
JW Anderson, in the meantime, brought about a commotion by debuting a collaboration with Wellipets, a British model beloved for its animal-faced rain boots. The always-playful designer has turned child’s footwear into colourful clogs for eccentric adults. (It would not be the primary time he is turned an out-there thought into covetable kicks, look no additional than the label’s chain idler.)
