London Fashion Week: Streetstyle, Feeling Flat

I know we said we had posted all of the streetstyle, but then we spotted these great shoes and didn’t want to deprive you of this insight.

So, you will have spotted some amazing towering heels in all of the other London Fashion Week posts. Just to show an even and balanced view, we have decided to share some of these super smart flatties with you too. Building on the androgynous direction, capturing the crepe soled, brother creeper revival as well as saying hello again to those tried and trusted DM‘s- the flat shoe was not only a great style choice, but also a very sensible option when the rest of the fash pack was teetering over Somerset House‘s cobbles and praying for the moment they could slip off their Loubi’s and slip on some corn plasters…

Events- 1234, Part 3: You’ve got Sole!

And last but not least from our style spotting bonanza at the 1234 festival, we have an accessories focused post. Its one that takes me down memory lane..

We’ve been spotting the odd crepe soled shoe, otherwise known as ‘brothel creepers’ or ‘beetle crushers’, on some cool boys and few girls around town, but Saturday’s event sealed this shoe styles ascent back into fashion consciousness. We have also been aware of Dr Martens coming through again, but have felt a little unconvinced- again, until Saturday. You girls know how to rock a manly shoe with style and panache!

I lived in a much loved pair of crepe soled shoes when I was doing my Art foundation many moons ago (suffice to say that it was the late 80’s!). I can even remember buying them on Floral Street in Covent Garden. Was there a Rokit store there then, opposite Jones? I thought I looked so cool in them with my Dicky Dirts dungarees, a pair of Paul Smith silk boxer shorts and a vintage bustier. I must look out a photo… or maybe not!
