From international Maisons to local labels, below you will find her pick of the crop for the coming season.


Aquazzurra pink - Boudoir Sling 105

The latest addition to Aquazurra’s Boudoir family is the feather slingback in plush corduroy. The irresistible design comes in a vintage rose colour with a 105mm high heel and is inspired by old Hollywood movies from the 1940s. The glamorous mule wraps around the ankle and is the ideal Trans-seasonal shoe for colder evenings.

Christian Louboutin - Kate Cotton Sling

Christian Louboutin’s kitten heeled ‘Kate’ slingback is at the same time both retro and modern, making it a perfect sandal for late summer evenings. The girly pin up-inspired gingham print is reimagined in a checked, soft rose hued cotton that oozes timeless sophistication.
