Women’s mules no longer feel like misfits; in fact, over the seasons they have become the darling of shoe designers like Vanessa Wu. Brought bang up-to-date by the famous Italian fashion house with the GG logo, the fur mule is carving out a reputation for itself on the catwalks and in the streets. So much so that mules can now be spotted on the feet of some of fashion’s most high-profile influencers (Wu-hoo!). So, wave goodbye to flip-flops this summer and say hello to mules!
Comfortable and elegant, mules liberate your feet. When spring arrives, nothing feels nicer than slipping on a pair of mules for a walk in the city or country. Offering more coverage than sandals, mules still reveal your heels, so make sure they’re looking fantastic!
The history of the mule dates back to the Roman Empire. It was worn by men of high society in red or purple. In the 18th century, the French Court and courtesans appropriated the mule and added a heel. You then have to wait until the fifties before women’s mules rise to popularity again. Today, as a tribute to the glamour icon Marilyn Monroe, the heeled mule has become the embodiment of retro-rock chic. On a warm summer’s evening, Vanessa Wu mules will not hesitate to usurp a nice pair of pumps.
Women’s clogs are a whole new world to be explored! For a natural, boho look, pair your clogs with a long dress and, with your hair blowing softly in the breeze, feel at one with nature. Clogs have quite a story to tell. Blending folkish charm with traveler spirit, these shoes have a rich history and are now seen as a key piece in any self-respecting shoe collection.
