It’s the end of Fashion Month, and after weeks of the mad dash between shows, shoots, and everything else in between, I’m still reaching for my Gucci platform pumps. If that’s not an endorsement for comfortable heels, I don’t know what is. They’re shockingly easy to walk in (just stay away from NYC’s Meatpacking District and most Parisian streets, aka the locations of pretty much every show I went to), and with the wide variety of color and hardware options, are even easier to incorporate into your wardrobe. I most recently wore my navy and white striped version to the Chanel show, paired with pieces by girl boss designers in honor of International Women’s Day: a Fallon choker, a Stella McCartney top, a J. Crew faux-fur scarf, and Ellery pants. No matter how you style them, though, these are THE shoes of the season, and considering Gucci’s fur slippers were the shoes of last season, it’s safe to say that the house has footwear (and for that matter, bags) on lock right now. I can’t wait to see what Alessandro Michele brings us next!
