Ahead of Valentine’s this weekend, we’re very much in the mood for love… for our friends and lovers, shiny new websites and particularly exciting new collections. This is to say our SS16 collection is now live!
You expect some newness each time seasons change, but SS16 marks the beginning of a particularly bold new phase for Kat Maconie.
This season we have moved to new regions: our shoes have made it to new shelves across the globe, but we’ve also looked at new places for inspiration. Paired with our nods to architecture and art, we have travelled to South America for inspiration. Marrying traditional Aztec art to mid-century constructivist movement, the collection is filled with elaborate embroidery and graphic patterns.
Bold colours are a given - now they’ve been dipped in sunshine and bright blue oceans. Vivid corals and beautiful blues emerge, pinks make an appearance. Blacks and whites offer contrasts, sprinkles of gold add depth. From suede to embossed leather, textures become central.
Fun and bold, the collection remains true to the Kat Maconie signature aesthetic while pushing forward with new styles. We've revamped some of our classics like Heidi and Colette, and built on existing constructions to bring you Betsy and India. Neive and Rosanna are entirely new with their round heels, as are chunky platforms (and flatforms!) like Eva and Celeste.
From rooftop parties to days in the office to afternoons in the sunshine, this collection covers all the bases.
