For fall ’17, Simone Rocha took notions of armor, camouflage and the great outdoors and transported them into the grand, gilded interior of London’s Lancaster House today at London Fashion Week.
Pumps came with overblown furry toes and exaggerated Perspex casing around the heels as if to protect them.
Birkenstock-type sandals were partially obscured with shaggy embellishments like the beard of a goat. While elsewhere, platforms had extended toes resembling hooves.
But before the anti-fur brigade takes up arms, we can happily report that every last bit of fluff was faux.
The overblown silhouettes of the shoes perfectly mirrored the cocooning proportions of Rocha’s ready-to-wear.
“This season I wanted to elevate my signatures,” the designer explained backstage, “and bring all of the elements of the collection into the footwear as well.”
