The reimagined ballet flat perfectly complements the season’s throwback narrative.
Inspired by menswear and decades past, designers took to the runways to reinterpret iconic silhouettes for the fall 2019 season. The footwear acted as a counterbalance to the strong tailoring and daring array of colors seen on the catwalk. Minimalism, femininity, and tactile play distinguished the fancy footwork. In the spirit of resurrection, our favorite Italian house Thierry Rabotin revisited their signature Grace flat. Three all-new finishes offered exclusively at Hanig’s Footwear make the perfect companions for autumn’s style playbook.
Thierry Rabotin’s Grace is the quintessential flat—comfortable and refined with a youthful spirit. It’s rendered utilizing the heritage sacchetto technique for a streamlined fit. Priced at $460, the flat returns in a black patent leather drillo print, charcoal suede, and navy suede. A trio of discreet elastic bands inserted into the vamp aid slip-on entrance while self panels on the sides reinforce the simple construction. A dual-textured leather interior prevents irritation for all-day wear. Below, an updated rubber sole with a grooved tread pattern transforms the silhouette into a practical walking shoe offering enhanced cushioning support and a surefooted step.
We love Thierry Rabotin’s Grace for its timeless elegance and effortless ability to adapt to changing trends from season to season. With an eclectic mix of collections, there was a little something for everyone shown on the fall runways. Get dressed for dinner in a sheath dress layered with a sharp-shouldered trench coat belted at the waist. Bold red lipstick, a collar necklace and an enchained shoulder bag add a finishing touch. Slip into the patent leather Grace to incorporate a textural juxtaposition into the equation via its sleek pattern. The ‘70s got a chic revival. Team a tie-neck blouse with a pleated skirt and slightly oversized blazer to get the look for dominating the boardroom. The charcoal suede option pairs well with the restrained styling. English tweed is back in a big way, as well. Capes carrying the motif are a surefire way to make a statement. Avoid looking outdated by opting for the navy suede version of the Grace flat, a turtleneck sweater in a neutral color, and opaque hosiery under a mini skirt. This smart combination introduces a decidedly modern take on the classic outerwear style. Whether you’re a workweek sartorialist or prefer to save your best outfit ideas for the weekend, Thierry Rabotin’s Grace flat serves as a wardrobe mainstay to pull any look together in a snap.
