There’s so much to love in Antonio Marras’s 2015 Resort Collection..

Embracing vintage concepts without the slightest hint of a costume: A-line cuts, boxy shapes, explosive prints with pop art polka dots and bubble gum pink all mashed together with culottes, cropped tops and ugly shoes.

It’s like eating the perfect four-course  French meal with your fingers in an American Diner whilst wearing a bikini and a smile.

 The creepers are a joy.

 A touchingly aware cosmopolitan cocktail of ideas beautifully edged in black.

There’s a sense it will fit any body type: skimming, flaring and flattering, moving with giggles and grace.

 A homogenous slickness of wearability.

It’s the clothes you’ve always wanted to shop for with that magic touch of satisfaction:  you’ll look different…and you’ll look good.

Ugly Shoes?


Travellers with backpacks for wardrobes have been some of the best dressed people I’ve ever seen.  What little they have has to be chosen with care – practical and loved, worn-in with just that touch of flair and imagination.  And Birkenstocks make the ideal travelling shoe – invincible, hardwearing – slide them on and off – or leave them on – for dodgy showers and floors. So I can understand their growing popularity: over the years they’ve earnt their fashion stripes the hard way (although Birks with fur aka Celine will never have my heart) But sadly the molded Birk sole never fitted my feet rendering them painful, heavy, clunky and useless – it’s not a look I’ll be signing up to any time soon.  But these shoes by Tods? Ignore the price-tag and I’d be there like a shot..
