Fashion face off: Flatforms vs Kitten heels

Which do you prefer?

Kitten heels

The cosiest heel of the season is up for grabs in any style you’d like—Dior’s logoed kitten, Delpozo’s embellished version or J.W. Anderson’s sequinned number. The prim, delicate design that shot to fame in the ’60s has shed its old-fashioned reputation for a cool, contemporary makeover.

Fashion’s flaming love affair with the ’70s and ’80s continues with the revival of flatforms—Marc Jacobs’ rave-inspired boho collection of sky-high suede pairs is proof. In Milan, too, Gucci gave the trend a colourful nod with ‘rainbow’ flatforms that instantly sent Instagram into a tizzy.
