From flats to skyscraper heels, metallic fabrics feature heavily, alongside notes of fluoro, patterned and wooden detailing. Focusing on accentuating textures, the collection highlights snakeskin, and embossed and softly tumbled leathers, while painted raw leather edges draw the eye to the intricate level of detailing. Strong lines and strappy overlays leave room for summer feet to breathe, while heavier and masculine shapes pair perfectly with shorts and structured dresses.
In this latest seasonal delivery, designers Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn have continued their signature aesthetic of pairing contrasting textiles and colours, with wooden hand-carved heels and wedges upping their craftsmanship ante.
