Upcoming spring is full of colours, models, trends, is beautiful and in some way sounds individual as we have may choices to wear the rich new shoes S/S 2013 Collections.

When Karl Lagerfeld dressed every model in black pointed ballets flats for his spring/summer 2011 couture show, exasperatedly exclaiming that he had had enough of ‘skyscrapers’, flats were instantly elevated to the most elegant option for evening wear. Gradually, the message permeated: hemlines adjusted to compliment new foreshortened silhouettes; our centre of gravity returned; strides took on a new languid pentameter. All in all, the effect was delightfully graceful.

Pure and simple shoes

It’s fitting that this season, one so preoccupied with modish Sixties influences, that the footwear which liberated dolly birds – allowing hoards of them to run down Abbey Road with intimidating pace – should return to the fore.

Louis Vuitton’s elongated white pointed courts were set on right-angled heels like constructivist shelf brackets, while for his eponymous collection, Marc Jacobs softened the heel into a bulbous block, but the over-all Edie Sedgwick effect remained the same.

Fastening neatly behind the ankle, Miu Miu’s slip-on patent pointed flats imbued a sensible shoe with grown-up glamour. Granted, the look works best on those graced with legs like pendulums in a miniskirt, but everyone will ring the bebnefits of this unshackling from great heights.

When a little elevation is required, Jil Sander’s modish Sixties space-age boots in optic white (or oxblood and taupe, as you fancy) with ergonomic retro-futuristic styling will do the trick. Or Hermes’ 45-degree wedge lifts nicely without the need for bells and whistles. Stripped back and streamlined is the message for footwear now.

The new optimum heel height is two inches – enough to subtly change your posture without inhibiting pace. Make Jean Shrimpton and Edie Sedgwick your style pin-ups: think monochrome, clean lines and a spring in your step. Despite what surrounding archive imagery may imply, a miniskirt is not a pre-requisite for wearing the new Sixties-inspired heel. A diminutive heel looks elegant with a below-the-knee skirt – so long as it’s A-line – or even narrow cigarette trousers.

Please, pay attention to the new Fendi models bellow. Elegant and comfortable as well even height heels.
