On her wedding every bride would feel absolutely beautiful, so in addition to the perfect dress that has been meticulously made for her, she’d love to find the perfect shoes. Once upon a time wedding shoes were limited to ivory courts with a high heel. But now we’re totally spoilt as designers are offering more on-trend wedding styles than ever before. There’s peep-toe pumps, lace-up sandals and everything in between in this totally covetable edit. The daring bride should look to Aquazzura and Nicholas Kirkwood for fantastical heels full of character and impact. For those looking for something equally as stylish but with a little less impact – or height – look to Dolce & Gabbana and their gorgeous pumps made in lace with jewel embellishment.

The newest shoes’ paradise is set under a domed cage in the center of the department store’s shoe section. It is designed to bring the 19th century winter garden back to life which blooms with mineral and gemstone cubes made of quartz and Masonite instead of the ordinary shelves. Apart from a wide range of red soles, the new store also offers a small selection of the brand’s handbags.
Givenchy FW16 ready-to-wear collection is an official new beginning for Riccardo Tisci, the brand’s creative director. Tisci specifically chose Egypt to accentuate such a change. “Egypt for me is like the beginning of everything, for writers, for food, for everything. It’s been a long time that I’ve wanted to do this collection,” declared Tisci backstage.
Other than from Egyptian motifs, Tisci also mixed Tibetan Mandalas and contemporary animal prints in most of his Givenchy clothing collection, managing to balance the overwhelming wave of ancient references with a mystical philosophy and a more updated twist on fashion. Most of the Mandala-inspired clothes also exude some clear Seventies vibes, as they look like haute couture Woodstock-approved garments.
Tisci, who remained true to his signature gothic style, chose a darker color palette for this marvellous collection, alternating blacks, burgundies and browns with softer beige, fire red and even white touches. As for the collection’s colorful geometrical patterns, they may be surely bright and bold, but somehow inevitably contribute to accentuating the line-up’s overall dark side.
