Georgie loves this… because what is a better antithesis to the statement shoe then the eternally beautiful one? Cue Lanvin's ankle-chain court. The soft leather round-toe pump with a stiletto heel and slight platform is a design classic, perfect in proportion and quality. Transcending the trappings of your basic court shoe with its matching ankle strap and gold chain detail, timelessness needn't be a bore.
In his eighth year as Lanvin's artistic director Elbaz continues to uphold a reputation for creating perpetually beautiful clothes. His spring/summer collection included the usual array of perfectly structured dresses with signature pleats, folds and ruffles. Elbaz covered all bases in a colour palette, which graduated from sombre black to salmons and peaches, reaching a decadent finale of metallic gold dripping in bejewelled embellishments.
With a collection that caters for both pared down glamour and show stopping drama, these versatile, classic shoes are integral to pulling the look together. Wear with or without the anklet and finish any outfit to the highest standard. Alber Elbaz's excellence in the field of beguiling simplicity makes this shoe an ode to the man himself. With Alber, it's a dream.
