Pumping up the spring with a dazzle

A look at some of the glittering, colourful heels that will be featuring as the weather gets warmer in 2013

Hugo Boss has solved the problem of colour by means of a simple idea: pumps with rainbow reflections in which all tints are present, united by an overall silvery sheen. Like mother-of-pearl on your feet. These heels are in 100% calfskin.

Jimmy Choo's many colourful models for spring/summer 2013 include these tutti-frutti styles, Clue, and (below) Raven, in coarse glitter fabric on a gold base.

René Caovilla's collection includes Maui (below), replete in crystal that catches and reflects the colours and light from wherever you are.

In Roberto Cavalli's collection, the multi-colour sheen is created by reptilian scales, a perfect match for the animalier garments.

Sergio Rossi uses crystal in 'Flashy Swarovski,' a perfect description for this colourful style.

Tory Burch combines metallic looks with ethnic-style materials in her spring/summer 2013 collection. Below, Careen, a high-heeled loafer.

Dolce & Gabbana return to their origins with supremely colourful shoes and a bag featuring the sort of decoration used for Sicilian carts.

Kenzo add lots of bright colours to their shoes: green-black and yellow, and (below), orange, hay and black.

Salvatore Ferragamo's wedges have a bit of everything in their patchwork of coloured suede.

Stella McCartney's styles for spring/summer 2013 curiously include designs rather similar to Hugo Boss and Jimmy Choo, with iridescent and multi-bead versions of her accessories.

Vivienne Westwood definitely lives in colour, and these mother-of-pearl-sheen shoes from the Red Label ready-to-wear collection for spring/summer 2013 are no exception.

I'm certainly looking forward to seeing all that colour and dazzle on the streets!
