SS12 TREND REPORT: THE WEDGE HI-TOP
Top of the fashion hit list for SS12 is the essential Ash high top wedge trainer.
With Olympic fever in the air sports luxe has never been more on trend. But you can breathe a sigh of relief, we’re not actually suggesting you do any sport: The catwalks were awash with techno fabrics, bright colours, crop tops and racer backs for SS12. Reference Alexander Wang for athletic chic and Marc Jacobs for luxurious yet sporty sweat shirts.
Another trend that ties in nicely with this is The Great Gatsby, glamorous and evocative the 20s are back! We can’t wait to see Leonardo DiCaprio play Jay Gatsby in Baz Luhrman’s forthcoming film adaptation. A pair of sport luxe high-top wedges work well with this trend when paired with a wide leg silk trouser and loose floral top. We recommend Bowie in black suede.
