FN’s Mosha Lundström Halbert is on the ground at Milan Fashion Week for the spring ’16 shows. Here, she brings you her pick for shoe of the day — the style that stood out among the rest.
Day 3 — Marco de Vincenzo
Marco de Vincenzo referenced the Memphis design movement for his spring ’16 footwear. Set atop a swooping modeled deco heel of black, white and gold was a sandal with generous tufts of marabou at the toe. Again for the designer, who last season caused a show sensation with his pillowy braided stilettos, these were were signature shoes that end every look on delightful note. There were also monochrome woven satin flats that had a similar charm. But a little feather goes a long way. — M.L.H
Day 2 — Prada
Today’s show put forth a quieter Prada lady than in previous seasons, with the apparel’s retro wallpaper prints in steady neutrals and filmy layers. The shoes, and there were tons of them, were each a little different, a little special, a little extraordinary. Dainty, oddball details prevailed, with silver orbs placed at the throat of pointed flats and heels, for example. A spectator toe and T-bar strapping had retro elegance, but the prettiness was cut with triple-strapped ankles evoking a terribly chic solution to a common sprain. — M.L.H
Day 1 — No. 21
Designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua added various feathers onto his sandal styles, which came in both mule and flat versions in embossed snakeskin. Some shoes went one step further with a row of tassels, which made the silhouettes extra bulky, or a leather kiltie detail on the front. Compared to the brand’s previous season of satin bowed shoes, the footwear approach for spring was decidedly more fall-appropriate. — C.A
