Phew! Just when I thought oxfords were going out of fashion, Dolce & Gabbana comes to reassure me that no, they’re very much in, and not only that, but they’re now permitted to be chunky and flashy at the same time! There is something reassuringly autumnal about the collection (tweeds, ribbed tights, knits, and brogues), and the masculine flair of the shoes is tempered by the exuberant mix of textures, colors, and materials. All the trends of this past season are mixed and mashed (metallics, animal-textures–croc-embossing and pony hair–, razzle-dazzle rhinestones, toe-caps, colorblock) into a delightfully eclectic and likeable collection.
By now you’ve probably noticed that wedges (almost entirely) and platforms (only to a certain extent) are being fazed out of the fall trends. Hm… I wonder what’s next!
