It’s been six months since Mikko Shoes arrived in Christchurch and opened its beautiful Victoria Street store. After a busy winter, the family-owned company has been preparing for the warm season ahead.
Metropol sat down with Mikko’s founder, Michaela Longstaff, to discuss some of the new trends arriving in store now.
- What are the key trends to look out for this coming spring/summer?
Each new season we look for the vibrant new styles that are on trend, while ensuring they still feel classic enough to last for years to come. A great example of this is animal print – a huge trend for spring, but in our opinion, it’s now a neutral. This season the print du jour is the subtle, sophisticated snakeskin texture – we’re huge fans.
- How about new colour palettes?
It’s all about those citrus and sorbet tones. From peppermint and seafoam to tangy tangerine, we can’t get enough of these dreamy feminine and joyfully bold colours that bring grace and energy to summer dressing.
- What new shapes are you excited about this season?
There are so many beautiful, interesting heel shapes. Our elegant courts range includes styles with sculptured, art deco inspired heels which add gorgeous sophistication. And of course, Mikko shoes come in premium, soft leather and offer foot support. Comfort has never been so fashionable.
Pop in to 143 Victoria Street, Christchurch, to see Mikko’s experienced styling team for a personalised fitting. There is something to suit everyone this season from their unparalleled collection of heritage, handcrafted European brands.
