Ankle, knee and even thigh boots are striding ahead in the style race this season, but as well as getting the height right, it is all about the heel. Forget stilettos and wedges, winter's ultimate heel is the block. And while there are boots and shoes galore sporting this chunky heel, we love the 'Lanvin Block Heel' which is the shape of a cubic monolith and comes in metallic gold, silver, bronze or lacquered black and partly covered with suede, calfskin, snakeskin or python. Wear the thigh boots over skinny jeans for a chic and striking off duty elegance, the knee boots with a modish shift dress and the ankle boots and shoes with a mini or midi skirt for a tough luxe edge.
The 'Lanvin Block Heel' shoes are available in Lanvin shops and online at www.lanvin.com/e-lanvin
First he created them for style icon Audrey Hepburn, then for the rest of us and now Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo has created an exclusive capsule shoe collection for little girls to include his iconic round-toed ballerinas, as well as bestseller, the Varina. We love the classic Ferragamo red pair complete with Varina bow, or why not get super festive and treat your mini me to glittering Oxford blue, silver or gold.
Ferragamo MINI is available in a select number of Ferragamo boutiques around the world, top international multibrand stores and online at www.ferragamo.com.
