This season's It shoes in the spotlight – an ode to unusual shapes and quirky colours!
THE NEW GENERATION OF FOOTWEAR
Crafted like pieces from major firms, shoes are becoming ever more democratic and incorporating elements from key seasonal looks. Python print features on heeled boots from By Far. The latest take on the staple cowboy boots is going great guns at Aeydé, while the very promising Gray Matters is producing its very own sleek court shoes complete with arty and retro-futurist acrylic ball heel.
The London College of Fashion graduate, former photo stylist and journalist Julie Toledano set up her label Nodaleto ("Toledano" backwards) with Olivier Leone. The newly-established brand has taken the fashion world by storm.
Nodaleto is emerging as an inventive label, its reach extending beyond shoes and managing to bring together a real community, known as the "Nodalegirls" on Instagram.
Produced in Venice, in the purest Italian tradition, Nodaleto shoes focus attention on beautiful materials and quality.
An ode to childhood and adolescence, you can shop the Babies Bulla exclusively at Le Bon Marché. They come in the brand’s signature "Tango Mandarine" colour, a mixture of red and orange, reminiscent of the setting sun. Their styling reflects a certain mild exuberance inspired by 70s iconography and architecture; a hybrid of confident glamour and strict minimalism.
NODALETO, Bulla Mary Janes ● €690, exclusively at Le Bon Marché.
Paris Texas is an Italian label with a strong sense of duality, instantly identifiable from the brand name. Its identity is based on the contrasts between sophisticated designs and inventive materials.
Offering footwear in strong colours and materials, Paris Texas is the perfect blend of Parisian style and Texan style, with fringing and crocodile and snakeskin styles among the most fun and striking options. The brand is setting out to simplify the busy lifestyles of trendsetting, sophisticated and strong women by offering them everyday shoes that make them feel beautiful, but without overdoing it.
Combining print and high heels, this Snake Print style captures the fusion of femininity and elegance to perfection.

Gray Matters creates carefully designed architectural and powerful pieces. Given that the colour grey combines two other colours, it comes as no surprise that designer Silvia Avanzi also enjoys mixing styles and influences, to which she pays tribute in calling her label "Grays". Silvia Avanzi takes her inspiration for Gray Matters from the artistic heritage of her home country of Italy, as well as her adopted city of New York.
Exclusively available from Le Bon Marché, inspiration for the iconic grey Egg ankle boots in leather by Gray Matters came from works created by Murano's glassmakers. Produced in Italy, they feature a discreet zip fastening on the side and an almond toe. They rest on an extraordinary heel recalling a golden egg for a sculptural look.
GRAY MATTERS, Grey "Egg" ankle boots • €595, exclusively at Le Bon Marché
We were so inspired by the 'art glass' on our trips to Murano that we developed delicate yet unbreakable heels in blown glass for a unique pair of ankle boots. Gray Matters
