Slingbacks by Högl
O sole mio – springtime in Italy
Missmondo was at Milan Fashion Week and brings back the latest colours and trends for Högl!
As a spring child, I look forward to March not only for my birthday, but also for the longer, brighter and warmer days it brings.
Fashion is bursting with colour and lightness once again and my wardrobe is brimming with new possibilities. The latest trends and colours for the coming season were also unveiled at both Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks – and I’ve brought one of them straight back to show you!
Colours tend to come and go each season, but there’s one timeless classic that repeatedly features among designer collections – and that’s red!
For its 2019 Spring/Summer collection, Högl unites two design classics in one design with its red patent slingbacks named SMILEY
. These versatile shoes work beautifully with a floaty dress as well as classic business looks. They’re also a great alternative to a pair of classic heels, especially throughout the hot summer months – with the open heel keeping feet cool and air circulating freely.
During this year’s Milan Fashion Week, I had many events and launches to attend, so I opted for an elegant look: a pair of brown taffeta trousers and a red coat, both from an Italian label. The red SMILEY
slingbacks rounded off the outfit perfectly! The wet-look material, with its high-shine and casual wrinkle-effect patent leather, is the epitome of stylish elegance, while the pointed fit, with its decorative round buckle, adds a trendy retro twist. And thanks to the wide block heel, you hardly notice that 8.5 cm heel that’s giving you a fabulously elegant look.
There’s often a very hectic schedule during Fashion Week, however the delicate heel strap provides more than enough support to keep up with events. I had no qualms about wearing them as I rode my Vespa through Milan to avoid the traffic jams in the centre of the city.
As I need to carry essential items like my phone, purse and keys, as well as other bits and pieces a woman needs, I added a matching red bag from Högl to my outfit. The ANIMA design is the same bold shade of red as my coat. It has a both a large and small inside pocket that can be closed with a zip. The bag was super practical for my trip through Milan thanks to its strap, which is long enough for the bag to be worn across the body, and can be quickly removed using its two small spring hooks. It therefore worked beautifully as a shoulder bag on the Vespa, and then wonderfully as a clutch during my event.

I’m really looking forward to the summer and being able to team my new slingbacks and bag with a light summer dress, a pair of three-quarter length jeans or a linen suit. These shoes are sure to become a new summer favourite you’ll want to wear around the clock! Have fun wearing and styling them!
