I’ve had a pair of gold SpringCourt sneakers for years… A mid-hi-top of sorts. I love them. So much so I can’t part with them – they’ve got a special place in my heart. They also have this ability to both seamlessly blend into my soontobeverytanned summer legs and be just about the only amount of metallic I can wear without thinking.
Garance told me about her similar love affair with a pair of gold Vans she saw in the window of a shop, and there is of course those Céline ballerina pumps (the verdict is still out on those for us here at the studio but, if someone gave them to me, I would probably accept).
I think what’s so attractive about a gold shoe – or even a gold bag – is that the little bit of a sunny reflective shade has a way of dressing up even the most casual of looks, making my simple jeans and tee an ounce more cool. Because yes, I woke up like this and thought this gold clutch would be pretty badass to bring to breakfast. And because the golden hour can be all day long with the right accessory.
