SHOES - London Fashion Week Shoe Trends

I've been busy dashing around London Fashion Week and am now trying as best I can to keep on track of all the things I want to mention on the blog. Shoes are one of those things! Here are some themes I spotted and some ways to bag the trend now...

Corrie Nielsen SS12

United Nude, as seen at Corrie Nielsen and Bora Aksu. United Nude shoes are a celebrity favourite and a hot look for the catwalk. The architectural shapes work perfectly with fashion-forward collections. Get the look now with the United Nude fold mid shoe boot. They can be yours for £146 and the heel is pretty sensible too.

Stock up on this brand now with these United Nude Fold Mid boots - £146.

Mark Fast SS12 collection

Red platforms, as seen at Mark Fast. I do love a fab red shoe and I've already got a few pairs in my wardrobe. I loved the red platforms that Mark Fast sent down the catwalk and GILES too had several pairs of red peep-toe platforms. Stock up now for the party season and you'll be on-trend next season too - hurrah!

I love these Ante Mas heels from Pedro Miralles - £94

Fashion Fringe catwalk show

Architectural shoe boots, as seen at Fashion fringe. I loved the Nabil El Nayal collection at Fashion Fringe and the shoes matched the collection's mood perfectly. The grey shoe boots were edgy, angular but also very practical and easy to copy. Plus, even though they were showing Spring/Summer collections, these are ideal for Autumn. Awesome!

Lako Bukia SS12 collection

Laces and ribbons, as seen at Lako Bukia. I loved the use of ribbons at Lako Bukia - it's a trick I've used before (see pics here). Simply weave some pretty present ribbon into the holes where the laces should go to change the look of your shoes - it's a whole lot cheaper than going out and buying a brand new pair.

Try these No Name Woodstock Laces shoes - £98

Black & white, as seen at Jena.Theo. I loved the Jena.Theo show (for the hair and make up more than anything) but the shoes were pretty fab too. Following on from the Chanel two-tone monochrome tights look, they did a similar thing with shoes. I also saw Aldo doing this with shoes for A/W and I think it was Warehouse that had a heavily featured item in press which was half black/half red. Anyway, two-tone is hot!

Loving these boots to get the look, Marian Ceres Black/White - £114

All shoes featured are available at Spartoo.

Oh... and here's a look that I am pretty sure won't be filtering down to the high street. Flower-covered flip-flops at Fashion Fringe.
