By Michaela Longstaff, Mikko Shoes founder
We know that Mikko fans are looking forward to their fix of new season gorgeousness – we are more than ready for warm weather and showing off our new pedicures!
We also know that you are juggling a busy life, so have written this short read with highlights of the exciting new SS22 trends to inspire your summer wardrobe. Read on!
There’s a unique light-heartedness to this year’s spring/ summer season with playful pastels and dynamic paisley florals, balanced by a sense of calm and serenity through the restful neutral colour palette. We have thoughtfully curated the new season trend collections, they all work beautifully with each other and offer so much versatility to summer dressing.
Hues of pale blue and cool pastels from our ‘Glacial Skies’ collection are a breath of fresh air, needed after a long winter, bringing a serene touch to your wardrobe.
You will see splashes of beautiful feminine colour in the ‘Floral Fantasy’ collection – think orchid, lavender and fuchsia. Pair these back with the calm and restful ‘Spanish Garden’ trend with sublime hues of sage, pistachio, olive and aloe. Evocative of a slow, Spanish summer lifestyle.
Underpinning the collection are beautiful neutrals – extended beyond the traditional palette. The ‘Not-Quite-Whites’ collection features ivory, nougat and vanilla for a sophisticated summer look, while the ‘Golden Sands’ is an ultra-wearable neutral colourway with indulgent camel, nutmeg, nougat and tan.
There is an abundance of natural tactile materials, woven finishes and cross-over strap detailing. Platforms and wedges provide the ultimate in stylish all-day comfort, while interwoven finishes and luminous metallics add the essential Mikko touch of luxe. With the addition of a platform sole, sneakers continue to remain forever in style, featuring retro details and unique panelling to lift your look.
Of course it goes without saying that we have curated this new seasonal collection to not only elevate your look, but also deliver ultimate comfort and foot support – our non-negotiable for every style we choose.
