AUTUMN ARRIVALS: THE MARY JANE SHOEThursday, November 12, 2015
As far as the shoe game goes this Autumn/Winter - aside from the patent ankle boot - there is one certain style of leg attire that has bounced back onto the fashion radar this season which I am particularly fond of, the Mary Jane (and not for reasons that said style partially includes my name, albeit minus the y - nearly made for me perhaps?). In terms of the strapped shoe, no one designs a better mid-heel better than Miuccia Prada - for both Prada and personally favoured sister label Miu Miu.
The appeal of the Mary Jane shoe is easy to target, with its reminiscent allure of the 60s and classic design it is no wonder the iconic shoe has rebounded - although the wearability of said mid-heel shoe is timeless, such does not render it ordinary. In fact, it is undeniable that with the Mary Jane springs originality, with each designer from Miu Miu to Gianvito Rossi, and even the high street offering - serving as evidence that the Mary Jane has been rejuvenated, and with each style comes diversity. My favourite of the batch has to be of Miu Miu offering with its unmistakeable retro stamp, the red primrose print pair of Mary Janes are standout with a childlike factor.
With such a strong shoe game this Autumn/Winter it is obvious that the Mary Jane shoe is anything but 'plain Jane' and ordinary, and coming from a fellow Jayne myself, I can second that fact - take the Mary Jane for day or evening-wear as the style shares the common attributes of versatile and classic, yet its modern counterparts are something to be marvelled at - glitter, floral or patent - take your pick.
