Stella McCartney flatforms with their huge wooden and serrated rubber sole were first introduced for fall 2014, mainly as a limited edition. These days they can be seen as potential candidate to turn from one season wonder into a more lasting icon. However, for most average people they might seem hard to wear upon first sight! So lets collect some inspirations on how to wear Stella McCartney flatforms in style!
Platforms are a somewhat strange fashion trend. Let’s be honest the look is not really flattering and its not that easy to walk in them. Despite of these drawbacks its a style that was repopularized in the late 90ies and early 2000s by pop groups like Spice Girls and never really faded afterwards. While in the 90ies the platform sneakers were the ultimate piece, later Christian Louboutin adopted the platform in order to elevate his heels and now classic Oxford lace up shoes received a platform treatment!
Do you need a sweater for this fall? After analyzing some of the major trends, like utility fabrics (parachute at Christopher Kane, neoprene at Balenciaga or mesh at Stella Mc), high end materials (like leather at Milly, mink at Gucci or embroidered lace at Mary Katrantzou) or oversizing (as seen at Celine, Prada and Stella McCartney) its time to sum up! Here comes my sweater shopping list for fall 2014!
So let’s continue with the fall trends. After we analyzed the outerwear trends in detail I feel its time to concentrate on another key item of any cold wether wardrobe – its a sweater! And while cashmere is always a classic choice – I feel that with the advent of sportswear-as-ready to wear neoprene sweaters or mesh jumpers are an off the moment choice. Let’s find some brands that played with this trend for fall!
