The iconic 70s shoe designer who so famously created Elton John’s flamboyant stage footwear is revisiting the adventures of yesteryear as he prepares to launch his first ready-to-wear line, inspired by the decade that shot him into fashion’s forefront.
Terry de Havilland‘s signature psycadellic tiered wedges and metallic platforms with snake-like curves were a hit with stars back in the 70s – Bianca Jagger, Elton John, Patti Boyd and Shirley Bassey to name a few – and they’re set to soar to the top of fashion’s radar once more.
The new ready-to-wear collection will feature key styles from his bespoke couture creations including the much-loved ‘Margaux’ wedge in metallic leather with Swarovski crystals, the ‘Emma’ ankle boot with diamante details, and the ‘Gemma’ lace-up boot (our favourite), with prices ranging between £150 and £280, the Telegraph reveals.
The shoes will be available selected stores across the UK and online from May, when we’re predicting streams of 70s-inspired girls stomping the streets in them.
