It seems Givenchy was ahead of the curve, as metal capped toes are now showing up all over the place. Zara, Louis Vuitton and Stuart Wietzman have all hopped onto the bandwagon, cleverly mining their way to our hearts.
Ingenious. Absolutely ingenious. No longer will you have to worry about stubbing your toes, and just imagine the glamour of having sunlight seemingly reflecting off your toes. I tried on a pair of metal rimmed sandals from Boutique 9, and funnily enough, it wasn't the metal tip that enticed me, but the lovely, light lavender colour of the Boutique 9 Berthes.
Shopping is going to be a joy this season. There's polished luxury everywhere I look, and everything I see is telling me to indulge in myself a little. This spring, it's all about dipping (and tipping) your toes in gold.
