Dior Spring 2016 Shoe Highlights: Paris Fashion Week

Ultra, outré femininity continues to be re-examined and reimagined at Dior under Raf Simons. Usually, the designer employs footwear to undercut any overt sweetness with an element of discord — be it previous seasons’ fetishistic patent and acrylic boots or couture sneakers. But for spring ’16, that was less of the case.

Block-heel mules had more of a soft gamine insolence than a serrated edge. Designed by house footwear lead Francesco Russo, they still were packed with many new details which are sure to influence. The heel shape, for instance, was a novel teardrop wedge. And across the pointed toe upper, a pulled sash and D-ring provided a draping detail — an update on the expected bow. The same draped approach applied to secure patent ankle straps.

As a total look, it came off a little too too, but it’s not hard at all to imagine those same shoes working even better when paired with less flou.
