When it comes to fall footwear trends, for the past few seasons block heels experienced a real revolution. A couple of years ago, Phoebe Philo surprised us all with unique 2-inch heeled shoes presented in Celine’s fashion show for Spring Summer 2014. Soon after such a thick heel got its inheritors in the same winter, but a year later we will be wearing some similar styles according to other creative fashion directors.
This winter, the key piece has a slightly higher block heel shaped with pointy yet rounded shoe edges and therefore represent a classic pair of shoes worth investing. However, although they united with the shape and form, shoe designers of these fashion brands had different visions when it comes to the style of block heels.
The Belgian designer Dries Van Noten embrace a very popular material one season – velvet. His boots are fun and wearable piece just as runway shoes of his fellow countrymen Raf Simons made of cool latex. Velvet is the favourite fabric of Roberto Cavalli and Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy too and they aren’t afraid of playing around and experimenting with colours. For Marc Jacobs and Loewe’s British designer, Jonathan Anderson winter is synonymous with a pair of sexy knee-high boots.
