Channelling seasonal European trends, HÖGL shoes are crafted for fashion forward women looking for something more from their footwear. And as the weather gets warmer and evenings longer, dusting off a pair of sandals or sliding on a pair of sculptured heels never sounded so good. Whether it’s attending a wedding, dining at a restaurant, or enjoying a picnic in the sunshine, the HÖGL range has a pair of shoes for every occasion. Below we look at four trends weaved into the HÖGL spring/summer 2021 collection, and four reasons why we adore this contemporary European brand.
Opulent puffed sleeves, full skirts and puffer jackets have made a comeback this season and their larger-than-life influence is reflected in the HÖGL range for this summer. According to the HÖGL design team, these designs contrast those of the 80s and instead exude cool attitude. Explore volume through thick soles, soft tubular leather straps and bright prints. Our favourite voluminous styles include the Helina sandal, Hodson slingback and Hurley sneaker.
We cannot get enough of soft tones, with the comforting colour range consisting of shades including beige, taupe and camel. In addition to soft tones, crisp white radiates throughout the collection. All-white heels offer perfect solutions to bridal shoes while chunky white soles are aplenty. Shades of white and natural tones represent positivity and optimism and, quite frankly, it wouldn’t go astray following two challenging years! Our favourite styles in soft tones include the Hillma heel in nude, Hythe slide in light blue and Hondo sneaker in this season’s sought-after garden print.
Complexity takes a backseat this season as simple yet eye-catching designs take the reins. Footwear that highlights high-quality materials and artisanship can take even the most minimalist clothing to new heights. Furthermore, according to HÖGL, certified materials and upcycling are becoming prominent in footwear, shifting the focus from elaborate designs to ethically-made ones. Our favourite minimal styles include the Holbrook heel, Hemet sneaker and Haywood loafer.
Ahead of the spring/summer 2021 season, runways in Europe were filled with outfits that paid homage to the 70s. Think corduroy jackets and trousers, high-waisted skirts, puffed sleeves and tie-neck shirts. In a way they were a reminder of the simpler times, evoking memories of times gone by. You’ll find subtle retro injections in the HÖGL spring/summer 2021 collection, from coloured soles to sculptured heels. Our favourite retro-inspired styles include the Halifax sandal, Howley mule and Hastings sneaker.
HÖGL shoes offer a touch of extravagance which guarantee a contemporary and self-assured look. While they are endlessly stylish, they also offer wonderful versatility. The collection celebrates those qualities we value so highly at Peter Sheppard Footwear and we’re positive you will love every shoe. Shop the HÖGL collection in store or online here.
