SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Stella McCartney

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.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Stella McCartney

It’s baaaack!  The flatform, that is (if my autocorrect will stop spelling flatworm finally).  Once a forgotten 90’s staple, this summer, the flatform sandal will be seen in all variations and form.  Stella McCartney was one of the pioneers of bringing back the chunky footwear in her Fall/Winter 14-15 show via her platform lace-up shoes.  Now, she’s transformed the platforms for her Resort 2015 collection, creating colorful pool slides.

The fun striped pair of foam-platform sandals looks amazing paired with her colorful resort collection.  You can recreate the look by pairing the sandals with a red jumper, or don an all white ensemble to make the shoes really stand out.
