The footwear update: Retro sneakers

L-R: Loewe, Gucci, Golden Goose

One accusation frequently leveled at the fashion industry is that it’s forever in search of what’s ‘next’ and ‘new’, but SS19’s retro-inspired sneakers refute that claim. From the ’70s-style kicks at Loewe, Gucci and Golden Goose to Adidas Originals and Reebok’s chunky designs – which are more than a little evocative of the ’80s – it’s time to indulge your sartorial nostalgia (that’s if you remember it the first time around). The ultimate hi/low mix, these retro sneakers will work with everything in your closet, but paired with this season’s slouchy suiting they make for a truly compelling trip down memory lane.
