Topshop Collaborates With Up-and-Coming Designer Molly Goddard on Spring ’17 Shoes

Continuing its support for London’s design talent, Topshop has announced the launch of a footwear capsule collection created in collaboration with designer Molly Goddard for spring 2017.

Goddard has been a part of Topshop’s NewGen initiative since fall 2015, and the eight-piece footwear range was originally presented during the designer’s catwalk show last September at the Topshop show space.

The collection features flat, knee-high and ankle boots in bright red or bold metallic shades, as well as more classic, feminine pieces including buckled flat pumps and lace-up sandals. The shoes were matched to the designer’s signature layered tulle dresses, which were updated in fluorescent colors for spring.

“It’s the first time that we’ve been able to make our own shoes for a show, and I liked experimenting with the different colors and leathers,” said Goddard. “The shoes really pulled the collection together, and they’ve been a nice way to introduce the brand to a wider audience. Some of the styles are really wearable and others are a little more daring — my favorites are the silver knee-high boots.”

The collection, which will be sold at select Topshop stores and on its website, is priced between 95 pounds and 175 pounds (or about $118-$217 dollars at the current exchange rate).

Goddard has been talked about a lot lately, having been named Emerging Designer of the Year during the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Awards 2016, held in London in November.

That same month, she also teamed with London’s Now Gallery on her first communal art exhibition, which features gigantic, ceiling-hanging versions of her tulle dresses that visitors can update with their own embroideries. She also launched her first e-commerce site, which features an edited selection of seasonal and exclusive pieces.
