Shoe fans rejoice – Roland Mouret has announced that he will be launching a footwear line to be available for the next season!
Although not due in stores for a quite a few more months, the six styles he’s created for the line will be worn by the models at his Paris Fashion Week show on March 2nd, which will then grow to a “proper shoe collection” over the next few years.
So what can we expect from the designer of the genius Galaxy dress which sent the fashion world into a frenzy? Court shoes, T-strap shoes, thigh-high boots and ankle boots in a variety of materials including suede, lizard print leather and deerskin. And here’s a nice little detail that might just become as famous as the Louboutin red sole: an R shape will be visible when looking at the shoe on its side – very cool!
“These are shoes that women can wear day-in and day-out… They have a masculine feel, a daytime attitude, and they are not too precious. And, although they have a high heel, they are really comfortable. My challenge was to balance sexiness with comfort,” Roland told WWD.
Great everyday shoes that are just as pretty as they are comfy? We’re sold!
