This collection of Pollini summer shoes represents the best of classic Pollini style. With bold monochromatic themes, geometric shapes and the classic metallic heel. You might remember my piece in the winter about their ultimate boots with the same heel.
When Pollini came to me again this season to create an editorial around their shoes, I really wanted to do something urban. A lot of my editorials have been in rural or seaside environments, and although I love this aesthetic I think its important to showcase the beauty of the city too sometimes. I decided I wanted to create a colourful sculptural shoot, that framed the shoes like hair to a face. I also tend to love red, and black tones for editorials (it’s un-deliberate but I think I just gravitate to those colours) so I thought it could be exciting to stretch myself and my colour palette. I nearly never wear green or yellow, often I think it makes my skin look an odd colour. Although, I hope you will agree it worked here.
From the whole SS15 collection I chose these three pairs of shoes, The Slingback, The Pointed Flat and The Nude Sandal, alongside this classic Nude Clutch. I thought each piece represented a distinct look and need from summer shoes. You could live all summer with only these three pairs of shoes and some beach flipflops and never be less than totally stylish. Pollini have completely understood how women wear shoes and created collection after collection to show that.
