What's New: July 1

This week, the "What's New" was all about footwear, with a sprinkle of vacation! Retailers focused on artistic collabs, classic shoe silhouettes, and the resurgence of a '90s cult favorite.

ESPADRILLES

While espadrilles remain a resort and vacation classic, we’re seeing more variations of the classic style - from platform to wedged renditions and printed and embellished styles - this season. The casual and comfortable aspects of espadrilles with added height is a summer plus.

VAULT BY VANS HONORS FRIDA KAHLO

Following a collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum last year, Vans is releasing another range of artist-inspired sneakers. Vault by Vans is honoring the influential late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo with a special lineup featuring three of Vans’ iconic styles: the Sk8-Hi, Authentic, and Slip-On.

MINI DRESSES

As the temperature increases, retailers are raising those hemlines for more leg revealing mini dresses. Whether a slip style, bold shoulder, or wrap style, the universal attribute here is to stop above the knee.

KITTEN HEELS

This low-to-the-ground footwear originally appealed to nostalgic memories from epic 90’s fashion moments, and now the trend is back and making its way into chic collections. Kitten heels offer a variety of assortment options from strappy open toe sandals to closed toe pumps.
