Every girl has a go-to designer that makes them fall head-over-heels, literally, for a pair shoes. Be it that lick of red sole from Louboutin, Carvella’s colour-popping designs, or Jimmy Choo’s beautiful creations – but for me, it’s between McQueen and Nicholas Kirkwood.
There’s just something about their innovative designs that bring a fresh, new breath of air to not only my feet, but my entire wardrobe. And these self-tie platform sandals from Kirkwood definitely don’t disappoint when it comes to the ‘wow’ factor.
These beautiful nude patent leather sandals with metallic self-tie sash make for a key statement piece for next season. The Mary Jane is back on the fashion radar for AW11, and these Nicholas Kirkwoods work an innovative structure with just a hint of that old school, Mary Jane magic.
I completely adore the round capped, peep-toe fronts (just perfect for showcasing the new metallic nail varnishes of next season) alongside their strappy accents and cut-out detailing.
Plus, nude will bring that added touch of glamour to your chosen ensemble, while effortlessly elongating those pins. And though the shoe’s accompanying price tag is a little, er, large, when such a beautiful accessory is combined with such an iconic designer, it’s rather impossible to say no.
