Milan Fashion Week Fall 2020 Street Style Was All About the Sandal

The world’s fashion elite descended upon Italy this week for Milan Fashion Week fall ’20, attending buzzy shows for top labels such as Versace, Prada and Bottega Veneta.

With temperatures in Milan hovering in the high 50s — noticeably higher than in New York and London earlier this month — attendees broke out their open-toed footwear, choosing statement sandals that adhered to major shoe trends.

Elsewhere, Brazilian influencer Helena Bordon hit the streets in a pair of eye-catching orange sandals from The Attico, which boasted a stiletto heel and crystal accents. The mules, which are available on Net-a-Porter.com for $1,070, were paired with white trousers and an Emilio Pucci jacket.

Identical twins Ami and Aya Suzuki wore sandals the more covered-up way, layering their gold Prada platforms over brightly colored lace tights. The Japanese musicians, known as the Amiaya Twins, wore matching looks with puff-sleeved blouses and high-waisted midi skirts.

Of course, sandals weren’t the only footwear on display among MFW goers. Prada’s chunky lug sole boots and loafers appeared on the feet of several attendees, adding a utilitarian look to counter bold colors and romantic skirts.
