Whether you’re treating yourself, celebrating Galentine’s with your best friends or dropping some not so subtle hints to your significant other, meet the shoes and bags to fall in love with, relationship status notwithstanding.
Whether you’re heading to a swanky restaurant or going for cocktails with your girl gang, you can’t go wrong with a court shoe. Kurt Geiger icons 'Bond' and 'Britton' – the former is the d’orsay cut, the latter the full court FYI – are worthy of a place in your heart, and your shoe-drobe. Bond has had a refresh in Valentine’s perfect pink-toned lurex, while Britton’s red patent finish is seriously sassy. With both shades being huge for the season ahead, investing in a pair is a savvy sartorial move.
Rivalling the classic court for occasion domination this season is the mule, but we firmly believe there’s a place for both in your shoe collection. Maximalist magpies can have their very own Carrie Bradshaw moment in Kurt Geiger’s satin, jewel-encrusted 'Lexington', while the sleek, pared back aesthetic and on-point V-cut of Kurt Geiger 'Broadwick' will appeal to the minimalists out there. Choose between two heel heights and a spectrum of chic shades, from nude and white to black and scarlet.
Disclaimer: if you love heels, that’s great, wear them, but know that they are no longer the only option when you want to feel and look good for a special occasion, whoever you’re having fun with. Fashion has finally done away with the outmoded tropes of ‘dressing up’, meaning that flats – and sneakers, but more on them later – should no longer be consigned to off-duty outfits.
Making their debut last summer, the Kurt Geiger 'Otter' slipper quickly became a cult buy, featuring on the feeds of Instagram pin-ups galore. This season’s re-works, in opulent fabrics adorned with the kitsch embroidered lobster are set to be equally in demand, so invest now. Co-ordinate the yellow pair with a red dress, or try them with straight leg jeans and a silky blouse. The crystal trend continues apace for the new season, with the Kurt Geiger 'Kingly' flat making a return in a plush new feather printed fabric version or plain black grosgrain option.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll no doubt have noticed that fashion trainers are well and truly a ‘thing’ now. When it comes to one’s you can legit wear after-dark, you’re looking for lavish details that elevate the sporty aesthetic to evening-appropriate levels. Cue Carvela 'Lustre', sporting a striped grosgrain ribbon overlaid with a cluster of sparkling crystals. One trainer, two trends, what’s not to love? With an iridescent pink trim and metallic tweed finish, no sneaker embodies the sports luxe trend quite like Kurt Geiger 'Linford'. Both kicks are perfect for pairing with spring’s myriad printed maxi dresses but look equally good with slick tailoring if you’re going straight from office to V-Day date.
Cute Arm Candy
‘He’s her lobster!’ As far as we’re concerned, Friends references never get old, so the Kurt Geiger 'Party clutch' never fails to make us smile. Novelty, but super chic too thanks to a glitter flecked acetate finish, the detachable strap means you can carry it cross body too. Don’t just save it for special occasions, try it with your everyday jeans and t-shirts for a fresh new season update. For a Valentine’s-inspired bag that’ll work for the office and after-hours, meet the tri-tone Kurt Geiger 'Mayfair' – blush pink, burgundy and a pop of red combine to create a dreamy spring colour palette that’ll lift any outfit.
Happy Valentine’s! And remember, these beaut buys are definitely not just for date night.
