Seeing wedges and high-heeled brogues on a men’s runway isn’t such a shock if you are at chez Vivienne Westwood.
This season, the designer filled her collection with women’s-inspired pieces, including asymmetric and draped dresses, which were sometimes worn with cardigans worked in feminine patterns.
The shoes certainly stood out. Some of the styles were done in collaboration with classic British brand Grenson, including colored leather boots with contrasting laces, or paint-splatter derbies.
Westwood’s iconic triple-tongue sneaker was reinvented with a shearling tongue, a nice update given the season. The shoes then got wackier via patchwork heeled boots or platform sandals, proving genderless fashion is still very much in.
More marketable options included soft tailored suits in classic fabrics, relaxed jacquard knits and a covetable bicolor shearling jacket with oversize rounded shoulders.
