New York Fashion Week has officially begun, kicking off a month-long marathon of runway shows and presentations, followed by Fashion Weeks in London, Milan and Paris.
The one thing hindering the industry and fans’ enjoyment of renewed design inspirations and picture-perfect street style? Frigid temperatures.
With icy sidewalks and fierce winds in full throttle, the timing of the fall ’15 shows can put a real damper on footwear freedom — and yes, even if you hop on the socks-with-heels bandwagon.
In light of this serious fashion dilemma, FN asked industry insiders — from fashion editors to DJs to fashion archivists — what their footwear plan of attack is for the week. The through line? Practical boots with interesting details and shapes, as well as old-school sneakers and sky-high stilettos. (Practicality isn’t for everyone.)
