Click through the galleries below to see the best in footwear from the New York Fashion Week spring ’16 collections.
Jill Stuart’s spring ’16 show featured a feminine focus on wrap-tied silks and flowing silhouettes, all complemented by simple strappy heels. Certain patent pumps featured elastic band strapping.
The brogue: one of most quintessential of footwear classics. At Givenchy this season, it was torn apart, reworked and completely rethought — for her and for him. Both made a strong point, quite literally.
At Betsey Johnson, attendees watched models parade down the runway, dance on the catwalk podium and celebrate all things Johnson whilst wearing leopard print platform ankle boots, multi-colored pumps and metallic silver flats. Right before the designer celebrated her 50th anniversary with a trademark cartwheel and splits.
Jason Wu was feeling the crisscross silhouette for spring. The designer’s spring ’16 runway show featured both heeled and flat crisscross sandals in a variety of colored leathers, from hunter green to snakeskin-printed leather. The styles added clean lines to Wu’s otherwise frilly and sheer ready-to-wear.
Creatures of the Wind
Creatures of the Wind presented its line spring ’16 women’s footwear on the runway, as well as its collaboration sneakers with Athletic Propulsion Labs (A.P.L.). While the label’s own shoes featured heeled sandals with chain ankle straps, the A.P.L collaboration styles included the brand’s signature runners in new colorways—from cherry red to a metallic-and-beige combo.
The brand displayed its spring ’16 women’s footwear collection amongst a sea of hydrangeas. The offering includes pointy t-strap heels and flats, some with floral-printed toe caps, as well as slip-on sneakers, wedge sandals and bowed loafers.
