The fashion world’s obsession with stylish trainers shows no sign of stopping for AW17, but this season there’s a shift from the basic white pump to more elaborate embellished styles in high octane fabrics, bringing a luxe feel to your casual footwear. We’re talking plush velvet, satins and brocade fabrics punctuated with metallic accents, beading and badges galore. Read on to see Ash’s AW17 offering of casual luxe.
Velvet trainers are a huge hit this season. Both of our star statement pumps, Nak Arms and Nymphea, come in plush velvet offerings in rich autumnal hues of bordeaux and midnight blue. These bold colours are complemented by bronze and gold beading, and on the Nak Arms, military inspired badging. Other tactile fabrics featuring in the Nak and Nymphea collections include brocades and printed satins in a variety of seasonal shades.
Sometimes though, we know only leather will do, especially in the winter months so the Nak Arms trainers also come in both white and black leather options with contrasting metallic accents. The white leather colourway is decorated with gold and deep burgundy red embroidery and beading whereas the black leather option is punctuated with chrome and grey accents, perfect for working this seasons must have space-age trend into your look.
