The countdown has begun! We are exactly 9 days 12 hours and 37 minutes (as I am writing this) away from The Academy Awards, better known as The Oscars. The question on everyone’s lips is: who will be winning best film…but this isn’t the only important query of the day. We want to know who’s wearing what? Which designers have dressed Hollywood’s crème de la crème for this glamorous event? I used to watch E! Entertainment’s red carpet show religiously and loved the shoe cam(era) they had to zoom in on the footwear.
The right shoe can make or break an outfit in my opinion. It should either complete your look perfectly or spice up a minimalistic ensemble. Another important aspect is the walk. If you can’t rock a 6inch heel then don’t. Nothing less charming than an awkward robot walk because you aren’t able to walk in high heels. The right shoe gives you style, comfort and confidence, which flows through your entire body. With the right shoe you are strutting the streets catwalk-style like Gigi Hadid or dancing the night away like Beyoncé. Slay!
A fashion orientalist favourite when it comes to footwear is Jordanian designer Anas Younis of Aennis Eunis. His made in Italy designs can be described as luxurious, elegant but also exotic and sensual. Every season presents a new challenge for Anas Younis, one that he welcomes with open arms. Calligraphy is the designers signature style. The red thread in every design.
His spring summer 2018 collection Hint is a feast for the eyes (and your feet). Hint is a way to express calligraphy without literally putting the letters in sight, thus the name. Laser cut calligraphy letters and dots are recurring elements. Hint includes different looks, from leather, suedes, denim and sheer fabrics to cork, crystal decorations and embroidery details.
The colour palette includes vibrant shades like zesty orange, candy pink, bright yellow and blue, but also metallics and crisp white. The collection includes high stiletto heels, platforms, block heels and flats. There is something for everyone. The strappy high heels with tassel details in yellow and orange are my top favourite. They are very Gisele Bündchen. The toe slippers with calligraphy details are also a must-have!
