While it may seem like winter is never-ending right now, fashion land is already looking ahead to sunnier days. To help you beat the January blues, here’s a sneak peek at our SS18 collection, including the just-arrived styles you need now…
Celebrating the inherently feel-good nature of the spring/summer season, the SS18 collection is a riot of colour and texture, with striking new silhouettes and re-worked classics setting the new mood. There is a focus on comfort, but never at the sacrifice of style. Discreet padding, flexible soles and specialist constructions ensure designs feel as luxurious as they look.
Our fashion trainer edit is amplified for spring, covering every incarnation of the now-staple footwear. Carvela’s crystal-encrusted 'Lucinda' (coming soon!) trainers are a new season hero piece, while Kurt Geiger’s 'Lane' and 'Ludo' nail the faithful white trainer trend, the former sleek and minimalist, the latter elevated with studs and Kurt Geiger’s signature eagle head.
At the sportier end of the athleisure spectrum, Carvela 'Lamar' remains a must-buy and comes in an array of wearable colours, from khaki to black and tri-tone. A twist on the cool retro runner, Carvela 'Lake’s' mixed materials and chain trim take sports luxe to new levels.
Contemporary Court Shoes
Forever a best-seller, make space in your shoedrobe for the latest incarnation of the Carvela 'Alice' court in a sleek navy to white ombre effect. Kurt Geiger’s 'Hays', with its v cut and brushed gold strap, offers another way to refresh your trusty court shoe collection. Mules become a must-buy, embodying Kurt Geiger’s modern take on the court shoe, with a style for every occasion.
Speaking of which, ‘modern occasion’ encapsulates the new aesthetic at Kurt Geiger, and is set to disrupt the notion of classic occasion accessories. Expanding on the concept of ‘any occasion’ dressing, heel heights run the gamut from kitten to block heel, stiletto to platform. 'Gianni', a Carvela icon that truly embodies the notion of all-occasion dressing comes adorned with crystals, ticking off one of spring’s key design details.
A wardrobe constant, the Carvela 'Mariner' loafer is reworked in plush red suede, and provides the perfect antidote to a December spent in high heels. Worn with chic dresses for the office and ripped straight leg denim off-duty, it’s a style you will rely on by day and by night.
The playful nature of the spring/summer season is epitomised by rainbow metallics and novelty touches with the multi-colour Kurt Geiger 'Kensington' bag already a best-seller and favourite with the fashion pack. Come high summer, expect wedges, espadrilles and pool slides galore. We’re already counting down the days!
