Androgyny is the year’s most talked about and somewhat unobtainable fashion trend; men dressing like women and women dressing like men. Seems bizarre to some but if JW Anderson and Topshop are all over the look, and Jason Wu‘s spring campaign is jam packed with shirts and braces, it’s time for us ladies to man up and dress down.
Crockett & Jones is a superb luxury shoe brand with some true classics that are both on trend and classic enough to last us a lifetime. Crockett & Jones is definitely in the line-up for this year’s female shoe must-have.
Here’s a look at their spring collection and a guide on how to wear each design. Make sure you take a peek at their full range and read on to find out where in the UK you can try these beautiful shoes on for yourself.
Crockett & Jones Spring 2013
Alexis – this is a stunning shoe, full of style and femininity but still in keeping with the male shoe form. A lace up ghillie shoe with classic punched patterns on the toe, a rich suede upper finished off with pretty lacing. The look of this shoe combines the simplicity of androgyny but adds a lady’s finishing touches.
This shoe is available in two gorgeous colours and the satin lace will be its most eye catching feature to anyone you meet.
Butterflies – if you’re a vintage lover, this luxury velvet design is right up your street. With the soft black velvet, bright embroidered butterflies which you’d expect to find in any vintage treasure trove, and plush satin quilted linings, this gorgeous house slipper is a must have for the laid back everyday look.
Barnwell – every girl needs a good derby boot. And this derby boot is tough, manly and right on trend for this year’s suited and booted look. Whilst the rock chicks dig out their Doc Martens, sophisticated fashionistas are falling in love the multi gender classic, the timeless derby ankle boot.
Made from the finest scotch grain leather, Barnwell boots are a stylish girl’s must-have for this year. They’ll live on throughout the seasons, taking you into AW13 nicely. But the question is; can you pull these classics off?
Catesby – this is a pretty spin on a man’s classic. This ghillie style brogue shoe has some super stylish additions to give it a little feminine oomph! Traditional punching detail, tassels and a fabulous wing tip design, these shoes are attention seekers to say the least.
But what really makes them stand out is the fine boned calf and high shine. That incredible shine takes you back to basics with what makes a man’s shoe so great. But with Catesby, we have all that in women’s form. This shoe is an absolute star in the Crockett & Jones ladies collection.
If you want to know more about the Crockett & Jones collection, you can visit the Jermyn Street shops in London. Seeing the collection in person will have you completely in awe of the stunning craftsmanship.
