When Stella McCartney first debuted her platform brogues at her Autumn/Winter 2014 runway show, my reaction was a little bit like this guy:
But after enough time had passed and I started seeing them on every celebrity and street starlet everywhere, I became accustomed to them like every other bizarre fashion trend (hello, Fendi furry buggies!), and began to love them (or at least let go of judgment…) in their own quirky way that I may never fully understand myself.
On that note, I bring to you Stella McCartney’s cotton-canvas brogues from the Spring ’16 runway show. They are printed with two of the key patterns from the collection- red & white checks and black & marigold stripes, adorned with the signature wooden sole. Pair them with layers upon layers of denim and a pair of shades, or with this Stella McCartney maxi dress for the ultimate Americana cool-girl effect. Bonus points if you can get your hands on a Fendi buggy FTW.
What do you think of the platform brogues? How would you style them?
