Four of our favorite designers remix the iconic shape for work, play, and everything in between.
For autumn, designers have reinvented the wheel. The runways showed us classic silhouettes reworked from a wide range of aesthetic outlooks, like sport, menswear, and even the avant-garde. Coveted for its versatility, the oxford shoe serves as the canvas for the year’s designer interpretations. Presentations from Wonders, Hassia, BeautiFeel, and Pas De Rouge tap into everything that’s in demand this fall season—opulent details, luxe fabrications, and color palettes inspired by the changing scene.
The Wonders C-3350 lifts its aesthetic from traditional brogue footwear, which originated in the United Kingdom. The style is crafted of dual-colored patent leather split with a transparent inset for a modern twist. Waxed cord lacing and a wingtip toe add flair. For a feminine touch, a slight rocker sole with a wedge heel and platform has been added. Wear yours with a a silk tie-neck blouse tucked into a pencil skirt as your office hero or for a special occasion.
Beautifeel’s Jane blends athletic inspiration and refined accents. Arriving in taupe and black, it features a suede upper detailed with whimsical polka dots or a glossy texture. Consistent elements include velvety laces, leather collar trim, and metal eyelets. A golden chain traces the sidewall of the wedged platform. Jane works well with a pair of skinny jeans and a cocoon cardigan for a cozy Saturday night with friends or a crewneck sweatshirt to play up the shoe’s sense of sportif.
Making its highly-anticipated return to Hanig’s, Pas De Rouge serves up a color block option in blue and black suede with burgundy goring and eyestays. Leather laces further the sophisticated feel while deepening the textural contrast. The shoe’s interior is filled with the Italian label’s signature bold red, adding yet another element to its visual impact. The upper is mounted on top of a chunky platform with geometric molding for a whimsical look. We love this style paired with tapered pants and a cashmere turtleneck sweater. Your favorite dress watch, plaid socks, and a patent leather belt match the shoe’s quirky spirit.
Hassia’s rendition in leather is defined by a glitzy leopard print with and ribbon laces for closure. Silver-tone eyelets and tonal stitching for reinforcement add polish and enhance the shoe’s durability. Driven by comfort, the style is fitted with nappa leather lining and a removable insole for personalization. With a low wedge heel, its flexible midsole is stacked atop a rubber outsole with a serrated tread design for grip. Team this Hassia oxford with a shimmery T-shirt, chiffon midi skirt, and crossbody bag for date night.
