Strut Your Stuff in Zandra Rhodes’ Début Shoe Collection!

Award-winning atelier extraordinaire, sixties sartorial pioneer and Commander of the British Empire, no less. It has to be Zandra Rhodes – she of the brighter than bright barnet (attention-grabbing green, punchy pink, pillarbox red) – is that rarest of flowers, a true-blue home-grown fashion virtuoso, and boy does she have flair…

Her trademark colour clashes, mind-boggling print combinations and penchant for blow-your-pretty-little-eyes-out (whilst simultaneously knocking-your-socks off) brights, and feminine yet outrageously dramatic aesthetic are hitting all the right buttons trend-wise this season, so it seems only fitting – auspicious even – for the release of the shoe collaboration of the summer.

Teaming up with high-end shoe brand Strutt Couture, Zandra’s collection is everything you would expect…and just a little bit more. Seasonal style favourites – wedges, platforms and stacked peep-toe booties – all feature, as do voguish intricate lazer-cut details, sorbet soft pastels and au naturel wood finishes…

Zica Tan/Gold

Zimra Pink/Gold

Zafira Grey/Fuchsia

Zanna Aqua/Gold

Zemena Tan/Gold

Zanya Aqua/Gold

Zamora Fuchsia/Pink/Aqua

Zerrin Light Grey/Mustard/White

Zinnia Tan/Gold

These utterly stunning, gob-smackingly beautiful booties are my out-and-out favourite…Wear with a super sleek-casual silk jumpsuit a la DKNY (look for peg-leg effect ties at the ankle for a neo-sports twist), or a pair of Alexander Wang-inspired joggers a slouchy racer-back and an oversized varsity jacket for totally covetable catwalk  appeal.

To say I’m excited about this collection would be a grave and monumental understatement: Zandra Rhodes PLUS couture footwear?! Frankly, I’m surprised I haven’t wet myself in a tumultuous flurry of feverish elation.

Look du Jour: Rainbow Stripes & Polka Dot Tights

Love, love, LOVE. Sheer colour-popping goodness (especially the red / platinum blonde combo!) Cute and quirky circus chic with a hint of preschool prissiness…

And lo! I have sniffed out the skirt for you (okay, maybe not just for you): French Connection (£55), shop it here.

…Bring on the Big Top!
