Step out in style with Tabitha Simmons

  Thursday 1st March 2012

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that the warm glow of the midday sun we have been experiencing these last few days in the good old UK?

I don’t know about you, but I am desperate to release my feet from the clumpy winter wellies and leather boots by treating my tootsies to a stroll in something light and summery.

Famously once claiming that she is “never out of a pair of stilettos”, Tabitha Simmons has launched her very own shoe range for the upcoming 2012 summer season. The collection will not only help you to make a bold statement in on-trend Bauhaus prints and graphic florals, but make you the envy of any style-savvy fashionista (well Tabitha is the Contributing Editor of Vogue after all!). With celebrity alliances including Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Frieda Pinto and the lady of the moment Kate Middleton, it’s only suitable that you and I follow suit; or should that be follow in Tabitha Simmons footwear?! I’ll let you decide.

With a signature directional style, each pair is handmade in Italy and features hidden platforms and intricate detailing. Based around her iconic stilletto fetish, the range relies heavily on a sturdy heel, dominatrix-inspired lace-ups and a fixation on femininity. So whether your feet are being dainty in ditsy prints this season, or flexing in luxe sportswear, or even stepping out in something bold and beautiful, the Tabitha Simmons range has a shoe to suit your style.

Tabitha’s styling advice: “I basically start with the shoes and work up, trying to put together things in an unexpected way, like my rhinestone evening spike heel sandal paired with a day floral dress.” We’ll take it in black!
