Our favourite flats get an update for fall
Decadent opulence is what comes to mind when one sees Aquazurra’s FW16 collection. Richly coloured velvet and plush suedes cover everything from the label’s signature ‘Christy’ ballerinas to this season’s over-the-knee boots to create undeniably seductive silhouettes. Don’t miss the fringed suede ankle boots – we’re coveting them for their boho ease. If it’s a more regal look you’re after, the ‘Baroque’ embossed velvet ankle boots or one of the many mink-fur trimmed pairs will make an extravagant first impression.
“The secret is, I always design a ‘V’ shape angled up the foot in the way that the shoe is laced, so it instantly draws the eye up the leg making it look thinner and longer,” says label founder Edgardo Osorio about the Christy flattering flats.
