The Selfridges guide to: this season's superlative shoes and bags
THE SELFRIDGES GUIDE TO:
THIS SEASON'S SUPERLATIVE SHOES AND BAGS
It's the moment we've all been waiting for: the SS17 rundown of, quite simply, the best game-changing bags and obsession-worthy shoes Selfridges has ever seen. Read on and resist, if you dare…
Lighter than a loafer, smarter than a sandal: the backless pump is a no-brainer for summer with its nifty slip-on-and-go sensibility (plus it's way cooler than a plain flat). Wear with cropped denim for smart casual done right.
Subvert your usual springy florals and opt for dark and moody flower prints and embellishment, with the help of Gucci, Coach and Christopher Kane.
The city sandal
A summer-in-the-city must-have: a comfortable sandal to pound the pavements, with enough oomph to jazz up a shirt dress. Sold.
The hard worker
Your wardrobe's most amenable friend (as reliable as they are pretty), the hard-worker shoe looks great with everything, and will keep on working season after season. Gold stars all round.
Blush, candy, salmon, rose… The list goes on for our favourite shade of the season. The best way to wear it? Top-to-toe, in varying shades. Pretty in… (you know the rest)
The white trainers
Trusty white trainers are still as strong as ever, with the street-style set continuing to show their unwavering allegiance. The latest updates feature a chunkier sole for a 90s throwback – wear with everything from maxi skirts to tailored trousers this summer.
New label to love: Loeffler Randall
Classic shapes, supreme leather detailing, but always with a playful twist (when can you ever go wrong with a pom-pom?): new-to-Selfridges label Loeffler Randall (pronounced Leff-ler, apparently) is the accessory brand we're all fawning over.
Get to know: Suecomma Bonnie
Fresh, off-beat and oh-so-cool: we're loving our newest shoe recruit Suecomma Bonnie's playful take on footwear, inspired by the street style of South Korea and all things K-Pop.
Exclusive: J.W. Anderson
More or less every front row line-up during London Fashion Week had at least one J.W. Anderson Pierce bag (aptly named, thanks to the oversized barbell pierced through the middle) perching on the knees of the industry's most stylish. Inspired by the punk scene's love of a septum piercing, we can't get enough – and the good news is, these two beauties are completely exclusive to Selfridges.
Slouchy, oversized, or tied up in a bow – summer brings a whole host of shape-shifting shoulder bags designed for you to throw it all in, squish it all about, and go.
Lighten up a shirt + jeans combo with the help of this season's line-up of the most charismatic accessories (think fluffy pom-pom sliders, furry rucksacks and Kawaii-cartoon prints), which are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
