Decadent New Cool Weather Collection

An irresistible offering in rich moody hues, Mikko’s sumptuous new autumn/winter collection has just arrived at the Victoria Street store and it is all the inspiration needed for the wintry season ahead.


Alongside the classic, cool weather colour palette, new styles in mustard yellow, army greens, ivory and pepper grey will add a little excitement to any outfit – ideal on those cold mornings where a little mood boost is certainly welcome.

The hand-selected curation by Mikko’s founder and buyer Michaela comes direct from the company’s trusted group of artisanal European brands, including Ara, Arche, Hogl and more.

A melange of new silhouettes and updated takes on the essentials, it’s a collection that has us looking forward to cooler weather.

This season’s boots feature a number of interesting elements that will refresh your wardrobe with minimal effort.

Bold lace-up styles are here, along with stunning architectural heels. A trend not to miss is Mikko’s nod to the western style – square toes, buckles and two-toned toe-caps.

Meanwhile in the casual department, sneakers have reigned supreme of late and for 2020, their elegant counterpart, the Parisian ballet flat makes a welcome return.

No matter your outfit, this classic footwear staple will transform any look with effortless polish – perfect for transseasonal dressing before winter truly sets in.

It’s great to see that animal print still features in various forms this season, from sneakers to boots and the aforementioned ballet flats – there’s a style to suit every taste.

As always at Mikko, fit and construction are just as integral as colour and shape – comfort and quality are core values for the family-run business.

So head into store to check out the luxurious new collection of timeless, wearable classics with a twist.

You’ll be sure to leave feeling inspired for the change of season ahead.

Best foot forward: Mikko Shoes

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
