WHERE FASHION MEETS CULTURE


IN HER SHOES

There’s nothing like a pair of shoes for expressing your own personal style. Author Suzanne Middlemass ( @suzannemiddlemass) is a British photographer who has worked with Vogue, Elle, InStyle, Glamour, and GQ and travelled to fashion weeks all around the world. Middlemass’s new book, It’s All About Shoes (teNeues, €35.29, out March 31 at teneues.com), showcases this sartorial self-expression to perfection with its eclectic mix of fashion mavens, all of whom put their best (sometimes bold, sometimes beautiful and other times outright strange) foot forward each morning. In an increasingly globalised and homogenised culture,there’s something very endearing about a woman who is prepared to step outside the box. Designers were similarly preoccupied with footwear at the SS17 shows – from spiralised heels at Kenzo to Charlotte Olympia’s miniature figurines and Thom Browne’s whimsical ocean-themed heels, shoes are this season’s sartorial talking point.

GOING FULL CIRCLE

?Deconstruction? is the buzzword in fashion and design now, and nobody is doing this better than emerging Irish designer Richard Malone. Like many designers who feed off the architecture and interiors aesthetic around them, Malone draws inspiration from the building sites where he grew up.
