27 Jun The Five S’s for Spring ’17 Women’s Footwear
With MAGIC and FN Platform just seven weeks away, the Las Vegas-based trade show has released their top five trend stories in women’s footwear for Spring ’17.
With inspiration being culled from menswear, girls’, Western and athletic, here’s a look at the new direction the season is taking.
Minimal and sleek retro silhouettes are the next wave of sneakers to populate the show floor. From slip-on sneakers swathed in milky suede to Chelsea sneakers in tonal colors and leathers, the theme is decidedly rich allowing the luxurious materials to make a quiet statement. MAGIC reported lace-less constructions in mesh, textured and knitted uppers, panels of neoprene, elastic and concealed laces complete the futuristic story.
Color blocked styles are amped up for Spring ’17 with new elements of surprise, including cutouts, layered fabrications, oversized grommets and sculpted shapes. Expect to see sturdier silhouettes like slides, oxford mules, loafers and multi-buckle boots help this artistic theme take shape.
