While it can seem like the mega shoe brands own Milan Fashion Week, several new footwear launches are making waves this season.
The most notable spring ’20 debut in Milan so far? Sara Battaglia’s whimsical new collection, unveiled at her presentation Saturday.
The designer — who first made a name for herself with bags and later launched ready-to-wear — debuted 13 shoe styles. Average price points are around 500 euros ($550).
Some of the strongest looks — brightly colored flats and d’Orsay pumps — include a statement plissé decoration. Platform sandals come adorned with polka dots and a mule has unexpected cutouts.
The names of the graphic styles grab your attention too — among them, the “First Date” mule and the “Bellini” sandal. (All of the shoes feature emerald green soles, mirroring the lining of Battaglia’s handbag collection.)
