Last week, NET-A-PORTER gave us a sneak peek into the major trends for autumn/winter 2019, including the must-have products they’re stocking up on, based on the most talked-about runway shows, as well as what the NAP customer is buying.
You won’t be surprised to know shoes are high on the list, and while slouchy boots will be big news next season, right now is all about strappy sandals.
According to Elizabeth von der Goltz, Global Buying Director, over 11,000 people bought naked sandals last season, with The Row’s Bare Leather Sandals being the most popular.
The site has now wisely re-stocked it in several colours, including coral, yellow and white and of course I want them all.
Next season everyone is going to be coveting barely-there sandals, so start your collection early with The Row's minimal, sophisticated style. Set on a modest 65mm heel, this pair has been made in Italy from soft navy leather and defined with slender straps that frame the foot. Wear them with everything from breezy dresses to tailoring.
If you’ve already got a pair but are thinking of adding to the collection, the likes LOQ and ATP have interesting takes on the trend.
For those thinking way ahead, the natural progression for AW19 is the square toe. Elizabeth recommends By Far, Gianvito Rossi, Neous and Bottega Veneta for everything from two-tone boots to neutral mules.
