Sweet Shoes: Kat Maconie SS13


As worn by GIRLS star Allison Williams on the cover of Company magazine earlier this month, these neon shoes are a firm favourite of mine from the Kat Maconie collection this season. They'd be just dreamy with a little white dress and a bold necklace like this one from H&M (such a steal!) 

I have long been a fan of Kat Maconie shoes since spotting these bold beauties at the London Fashion Week showrooms a few seasons back (see my age-old post here). 

Sculptural, modern and striking, Kat Maconie shoes are the sort that can make even the simplest of outfits, and the best part is that the are reasonably affordable. 

Manolo, who? It's all about Maconie, ladies.

Following studies at London College of Fashion (where all the best fash-gals and boys go, just so ya know), Kat launched her statement shoe label back in 2009 and I really do think it is going from strength to strength.

I am very sad to say that I do not, as of yet, own a pair, but i'm hoping I can treat myself soon as the Spring/Summer collection is my favourite yet.

With a fierce but feminine aesthetic, these powerful shoes are injected with a lively splash of colour and print, inspired by the Brazilian Carnival. Classic styles and shapes are given a modern hit for evening with block heels and gleaming metal trims, while peep-toe wedges and mid-heel mary-janes allow for contemporary but cool everyday footwear.

The styles look a little futuristic while still maintaining an air of 1960s simplicity, making them the perfect partners to the romantic minimalism trend for Spring. Standouts for me include the neon Abigail as featured above and the nude Pearl: envy-inducing heels that shan't break the bank. 



The metallic flat is an essential this season and I adore this MAGGIE style in gold (£185, here). With a contrasting black trim, this block heel Mary-Jane is modern and fun. Pair with a monochrome shift and a stunning collar necklace for a chic little look. 

A popular style from the new collection, the ABIGAIL printed t-bars are unfortunately out of stock. I'd suggest checking back here regularly for a new drop! They are just £230 and would look amazing with everything from bold pink shifts through to a simple monochrome jumpsuit.

Simple dove grey courts with a striking update, these VALERIE shoes (£210) are the perfect pair to replace your staple nude courts. 

Another favourite of mine, these flattering gold and nude PEARL shoes are versatile but modern and sure to attract many a compliment! (£230 here

As worn by the lovely Allison Williams on the cover of COMPANY magazine, these neon snake ABIGAIL heels are another new season hit. I'd wear with a simple white shift. Unfortunately these are out of stock online but keep checking back here for updates (£230)


Growing up, I was never able to find ANYTHING with my name on it. Whether I was looking for a little fridge magnet at the zoo or sweet little hairband, nobody catered for the Shonas of this world, and it was rather heartbreaking. Thank heavens, then, for these dove grey SHONA wedges, then. All is forgiven. (£180)
