Milan Fashion Week Shoe Of The Day: Spring 2016 Collections

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
