Designer Notes: Toe Interest

Our design-driven Spring Summer 20 collection takes cues through an international lens whilst curating original pieces, designed by New Zealand women, for all women. We spoke to our in-house team about the contemporary toe interest details you see on many of our kindred designs this season. 


“With the return of retro styling, toe post and toe interest styles are at the forefront of directional trends for SS20. Playing with strong retro references such as the 90’s toe ring styling on Ellen for everyday wear or the more modern approach with minimal, thin straps and playful asymmetry on Escada. The must-have silhouette can lend a point of distinction to any outfit, casual or occasion."


"As designers the revival of the toe interest trend allows us to play with designing sandals in new and different ways, looking at caging the foot in or securing the foot through more unconventional strapping.”
