While celebrity-packed front rows and huge production value are not de rigueur for the pre-collection outings (except at Chanel), that does not mean the product is any less inspiring. In fact, the pre-fall ’13 presentations so far have already spotlighted a season’s worth of lust-worthy looks. Whether it was Celine’s metal-plated creepers or Chanel’s furry boots or Lanvin’s leopard-print laceups, directional styles hint that statement shoes will continue to play starring roles come fall. Key trends include the strict-lined ankle boot, sleek feminine wedges, plenty of printed pony hair and a rich, earthy palette.
