Pierre Hardy – Retro meets futurism
Pierre Hardy – SS19 Collection PFW 2018
– by Tony Glenville
With the rise of the sports shoe in every variation from running, to trainer via tennis and basketball it’s a given that any shoe collection worth the viewing will have their individual take on this area, and Pierre Hardy is no exception. From zig zag patterns to bouncy shapes, from sugar plastic pastels to graphic monochrome.
However it was the real womens fashion shoes which grabbed my attention, spanning a delicate pointed toe sling back fit for a couture salon model to twist and turn in; though to Biba style pieced patterned high heels to strut Kings Road in.
The heritage of the brand name and the quality inherent in the product means that alongside the sports and “ of the moment “ styles are also beautiful shoes to enhance the chic of women of all ages and styles.
The collection is broad enough and clever enough to encompass all these things, and more.
Take a bow Pierre Hardy.
