Hot Shoe Trend: Toe Caps

February 28, 2012 § 3 Comments

Spring Summer 12 season brought us brand new hot shoe trend: metallic toe caps. Ever since Louis Vuitton show had toe caps on shoes of all shapes and colours I fell in love and looking at the pictures above who would not?  Indeed it has been a while that pointy shoes were off the fashion chart but now with the toe cap update they are back and they are big!

And it is not just Louis Vuitton – many other designers and high street already adopted the trend and made a wide range of beauities to choose from whatever your budget:

  1. Giuseppe Zanotti, Toe Cap Pump, £360
  2. Christian Louboutin Duvette 120, also available in nude
  3. Mango Toe Cap Pump, £75
  4. Sinner Contrast Toecap Points, £62 at Topshop
  5. Gilmore2 Metallic Toecap Points, £60 at Topshop

But the one I am the most excited to see hit the shops is the Kurt Geiger version from their campaign poster: white sling backs with metal toe cap and medium heel height, those are perfect for day-to-night summer wear and are definitely worthy of my summer fashion wish list.

I am sure is a month time, when the weather heats up you will see them everywhere! The only question is: would you go for classic black, summery white or trendy pastel shade?

Yet Spring Summer 12 season is different.  It has a clear winner – Louis Vuitton. Just recently I stumbled upon Daily Mail Article about how Louis Vuitton Lace from SS12 collection has already been featured on seven top fashion magazine covers indicating a unique success in the eyes of fashion editors from around the world.  And what those seven covers made me think is that I myself used Louis Vuitton as a focal point when discussing this season trends on more than one occasion. For example pastels trend – LV fashion show was all about pastels and its campaign even more so with not just ice cream shades everywhere but even ice cream itself. Hence when discussing the trend LV campaign was my starting image – fashion designer inspiration (see it here). And then I turned to LV once again when discussing sudden reemergence of pointy shoes that have been updated with metal toe cap thanks to LV fashion show (see it here). […]
