Three key shoe trends for the coming season.
We think it’s pretty much a given that On Pedder is the place for shoes in Hong Kong and, for Spring 2012, this shoe palace brings us color in all its glory from neons to ice-cream shades – there really is nothing dull about what they have to offer. Here are the top 3 trends to spot this season:
Paradise Island – features everything that evokes a getaway to the islands of Hawaii. Imagine strutting around in neon Sergio Rossi sandals or Nicholas Kirkwood digital floral print pumps while carrying Jimmy Choo’s clutches with hip pictures of surfers. There might not be a lot of strutting but there will be a whole lot of good looking!
Cosmic Girl – futuristic materials and technical details are key here. Think mirrored leather bags from Phillip Lim and Givenchy, in addition to Paco Rabanne’s strappy platforms in a metallic hologram fabric.
Finally, studs, leather and chains – yes, these three things are a badass girl’s best friends! Studded Christian Louboutin shoes and Valentino bags, McQueen’s black leather corset belt and Ann Demeulemeester’s chain and tassel belt are enough to get any rock ‘n’ roll chick going. Throw in some S&M-inspired jewellery from Bernard Delettrez and Tom Binns for some added drama.
