Today we will not make a general analysis of spring-summer 2016 fashion trends because if we do, then fashionable sandals are all existing models – stilettos, platforms, on flat soles with braids and belt with decor and tapered thick heel, sandals gladiator sandals and mules. Today we decided to make acquaintance with sandals from the best designers in the world. Only famous brands, only big names, only very popular fashion houses.
Valentine and Chloé gladiator sandals 2016
Creative directors of the fashion house Valentino – Pierpaolo Picciolo and Maria Grazia Currie – have made ladies a royal gift – gladiator sandals, designed to emphasize the beauty of the female feet. Some models come with laces, but not too much but just a small braided strap with gold buckle, others are to the knee and have a zipper in the back, and the others are decorated with metallic accessories. All models are made in black-brown range.
As regards the fashion house Chloé, Clare Waight Keller gave the girls a collection typical for the fashion house – one airy and delicate, a little more fabulous and mysterious, but, like Valentino, emphasis was placed on the 70’s. To the common gladiator sandals, the designer added a low wedge and the straps were replaced by braids in corsets, and here we see suede sandals that will surely be appreciated by the fair sex. The color palette is limited to shades of white, black, brown and some beige shades.
Versace transparent heel sandals 2016
“Brave and bold – this collection is destined to become the beginning of a new life for Versace”, told in one of his interviews Donatella Versace. The collection is indeed a wonderful one and sandals are no exception. Models can be divided into four types: bare heel with thick ankle strap, with Swarovski crystals, decors with Versace logo form. All have a common feature – a thick, stable and transparent heel, which definitely has now become one of the main tendencies of spring-summer 2016 footwear.
Nina Ricci tapered heel
The creative director of the fashion house Nina Ricci, Peter Copping, stood out more than most fashion designers this season. While they look for inspiration in ’70s, Copping was searching it in the ‘40s. This catches the eye at the spring-summer 2016 fashion sandals, presented by this brand. Wooden heel, very thin ankle strap (or without it), a lot of patent leather models and the most spectacular detail – a tapered heel. A very elegant option for the fans of the classic and retro style.
Roberto Cavalli and Marni High Platform Sandals 2016
The incomparable Roberto Cavalli never ceases to amaze and delight millions of fans of incredibly original, non-trivial, but also very beautiful shoes. And this time, the spring-summer 2016 collection, specifically designed to relax on the beach and walking on a white yacht, presented high platform sandals on thick platform with straps, carelessly wrapped around the ankle. All models were made of “reptile” and “crocodile” leather and some models were also generously decorated with giant crystals. Good job, Cavalli!
While the designer and creative director of fashion house Marni – Consuelo Castiglioni – delighted the guests of the show with most unexpected models of sandals, combining old Japanese flip-flops with modern sneakers. This combination of slippers and sneakers with a platform in bright colors, will be loved by active fashionistas, for which “comfort” – is not just a word!
Saint Laurent sandals over socks and Prada sandals over stockings
Sandals speak for themselves – it is the footwear that is usually only worn barefoot. However, the most famous fashion houses such as Prada and Saint Laurent have a different view. This season, they recommend that women wear socks and stockings in sandals. Interestingly is that both fashion houses were based on the same model of sandals – high platform and thick stable heel. Both have decided to decorate this heel. Miuccia Prada chose floral motifs, small floral print and cute curls. Instead Hedi Slimane, CEO of Saint Laurent fashion house, has deepened in the ’70s Rock and Roll years, as evidenced by his vision on heel decoration: shiny leather reptile, “leopard”, large and small polka dots, dense stripes that form a plurality of rectangles.
Lace sandals from Chanel and Balenciaga fashion houses
Those who are already familiar with Chanel Spring-Summer 2016 collection presented at Paris fashion week will not be at all surprised by their presented sandals – golden men shoes with laces. A small heel characteristic for men boots and laces present in footwear, perfect highlights the mood of rebels who came to the rally to defend the rights of women to be beautiful. The golden color of sandals, demonstrates that a woman is a woman, even if in one hand she carries a placard and in the other a megaphone.
Sandals similar to those of Chanel, were presented at the Paris fashion week by the fashion house Balenciaga. Nicolas Ghesquiere’s successor, Alexander Wang, presented a controversial collection and critics have not yet reached a consensus on its success, but the footwear deserves to be noticed. These are flat soles sandals with laces, the only thing to note is the strap on the thumb. The discreet pastel palette and elegant design lift the mood and the flat sole will ensure that your feet do not get tired even after a long walk.
Stiletto heel sandals from Miu Miu and Fendi fashion houses
Any lady is familiar with Prada fashion house creations, but not everyone knows that Prada has a line specifically designed for young, on behalf of Miuccia Prada – Miu Miu. This shows democratic clothing designed specifically for young bohemian. Fashion Critics ensure that it promotes an asexual clothing line, as evidenced by the multitude of shapeless sweaters and trousers in dirty colors and clothes that appear in the collection each season. We will not argue, but we will present several models of patent leather stiletto heel sandals from Miu Miu spring-summer 2016 collection.
Here is another brand, which this season has also chosen to return to the 70’s. The fashion house Fendi, led by Karl Lagerfield (yes, exactly he creates for Chanel as well), presented exceptional models of sandals with a special heel connected with few nice straps.
Although the fast tempo of life increasingly requires ladies to wear thick flat soles or not too high heels, let’s admit that a lady wearing stiletto heels embodies sexuality, sensitivity and feminine charm. Step in life beautiful and wear only fashion spring-summer 2016 sandals.
