Fall Winter Shoe Trends 2022 To Have On Your Radar
Maximalism has reigned supreme across many fashion trends this year, and Im pleased to say, autumn/winter footwear is no different. The new season runways delivered extreme heights with thigh-high boots and chunky platforms, texture galore with fluff, feathers, and lace, as well as an abundance of sparkle and shine with metallic fabrics and jewel embellishments,” says Emily Stott, Stylist Ambassador at Stitch Fix UK
Taking lead from the fall 2022 fashion trends, thigh-high boots were paired with mini skirts, Mary Janes complemented the best winter coats and trainers added a sporty spin to floaty frocks. And these stand-out fall winter shoe trends were the perfect finishing touch to every look.
“The beauty of this maximalist trend is that it encourages people to experiment with texture, color and style, in whatever way feels good for them. Granted, its unlikely well suddenly see everyone walking around with fluffy shoes on, but the option is there, should they wish!
These are the eight shoe trends we think you need to know about come fall 2022.
Finding The Right Shoes For You
Today, vintage and designer shoes by the likes of Chanel, Gucci or Versace are integral to completing your carefully orchestrated street-style or evening ensemble, but footwear wasnt always the big deal it is for your average Adidas Yeezy enthusiast.
The decorative floor-length gowns that upper-class women of the 18th century wore meant that their shoes, then likely featuring high curved heels finished with woven or embroidered silks a sharp contrast to the heavy, rudimentary form of the eras footwear for men were partially or entirely obscured by the base of their ornate dresses. What good is fashion if its tucked away?
Our modern ages legions of sneakerheads might have trouble tracking down a pair of black-and-gold vintage Jordans but can at least fill their dream closets with original Adidas Gazelles or 1980s New Balances if they put the time in, while 1990s-era Prada pumps or a good pair of mid-20th-century jewel-tone heels in satin or silk havent lost their allure with todays nostalgic fashionistas.
A pair of shoes can commemorate an achievement, mark an important trip overseas and is sometimes a rich manifestation of a hard-won physical feat. Whether theyre Hermès sandals, Off-White ankle boots, ivory-leather-and-pink-daisy heels by sublime shoemakerManolo Blahnik or Louboutin platform pumps, you can find your next pair of legendary luxury vintage shoes today on 1stDibs.
Gucci Biography And Important Works
Long before trend-bucking creative director Alessandro Michele brought his hallucinatory Utopian Fantasy campaign to Gucci, it was a modest Italian leather shop. Today, its an internationally renowned luxury house with an iconic logo, and vintage Gucci clothing, handbags and shoes are among high fashion’s most covetable goods.
Guccio Gucci admired the stylish suitcases he saw wealthy guests arrive with at the Savoy Hotel in London, where he worked as a bellhop. So, in 1921, after a stint at Franzi, a luggage company in his hometown of Florence, he opened a leather goods shop of his own.
At first, Guccis Florence business specialized in equestrian accessories. But as its reputation flourished, particularly among the English aristocracy, so too did its footprint. In 1938, he brought three of his sons Aldo, Vasco and Rodolfo into the business and expanded it to Rome and later Milan. In the mid-1930s, a League of Nations embargo against Italy pushed Gucci to experiment with alternatives to imported leather. Its woven hemp fabric from Naples, adorned with the brands signature diamond print, was a hit, especially among A-list celebrities. The material was first used on suitcases before finding enduring popularity on handbags.
