New shoes spotted around the FLARE HQ

Tanya Watt, Art Director, Balmain
“The military trend is becoming a classic, so these were a no-brainer. I love the bolt, strap and buckle details—a great contrast to fall’s ‘polished lady’ trend without being garish.”

Michelle Kortekaas, Assistant Art Director, Aldo

“I instantly fell in love with these shoes, which I wore to my brother’s wedding. The mesh panel on the front gives them a modern edge, but they still feel feminine. They are my staple for work or a night on the town.”

Mosha Lundström Halbert, Assistant Fashion News Editor, Alexander Wang
“While on assignment in New York to interview a shoe designer, I found these ponyhair mules. You can’t interview a cobbler in sub-par footwear. They remind me of a scene from Great Expectations, one of my favourite movies. Truth be told, I love anything that evokes Gwyneth Paltrow’s minimalist style in the 90’s.”

Erin O’Brien, Assistant Market Editor, Zara
“These were such a great fashion find and a total steal. The neutral colour and sky high platform makes them the perfect transitional shoe to accompany everything from short summer skirts to the new longer lengths we are seeing for fall.”
