Of all the random trends to crop up during New York Fashion Week, the red shoe and light colored garment combination was a welcomed surprise. We forget where we first saw it because these things happen like osmosis, but we can remember, for sure, seeing it at the Behnaz Sarafpour show and then later at Phillip Lim. That was when things took a serious turn for us and we became obsessed with finding it from other designers (and the stylists who likely made that happen)--funny thing was, we did.
For instance, Proenza Schouler (left) showed strapped red heels as part of their now-in house accessories line, and paired them with a mint green and patent trouser look. We also discovered the combination in the Marc Jacobs show, a decided effort on his part as the monochromatic light outfits to come down the runway were few and far between--the red shoes made a strong point here. Finally, it cropped up at Preen (right), acting in compliment to the red frocks that came before and after.
With a set of designers like that all showing the same micro trend in the same season we're pretty sure it won't be long before the whole thing takes flight. Such a thing might happen so fast that we forget all about it when the clothing finally delivers.
