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…

Malone Soulier flats
///

Free heeling

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.

Love a Louboutin

For strong-but-sexy bag and shoe duos, iconic accessories powerhouse Christian Louboutin rules the roost. Get to know the latest collection, which features ready-for-business styles in strokably soft suedes.

///

Moody blooms

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.

Alexander McQueen Heroine tote
///

More is more

From look-at-me prints to decadent embellishment, we're all living for this season’s crop of attention-grabbing bags. Shrinking violets look away now.

///

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.

///

Tickled pink

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.

///

Made in denim

Don't be fooled: denim's not just about jeans. Accessories decked in the blue stuff can be found in multiple guises this season (ripped, washed and even patchworked), with Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Valentino leading the charge.

Loeffler Randall - cross-body, shoulder bag and clutch
///

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.

J.W. Anderson - mini cross-body and medium cross-body
///

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.

///

Shape shifters

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.

///

Pretty playful

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.
