Making the Cut

Sandals, platforms, booties, shoe-boots, shoots- one thing they all have in common this season is cut-outs. The sandal has undergone an edgy turnaround ever since Carrie stepped onto movie screens wearing the now infamous Dior Extreme Cut Out Sandal- the ones that started it all! The cutting-edge trend was responsible for last season's gladiator hysteria, and looks set to continue this season with designers proving they are not afraid of those scissors! Giuseppe Zanotti, Givenchy, Versace; even our very own Mimco, are a few designers who have led the way for many a chain store look-alike!

Giuseppe Zanotti Cut Out Sandals, NET-A-PORTER
Siren Cult, $139.95

Givenchy Open Toe Booties,

Peep Toe Miss Buenos Aires $275

Versace T-Strap Peep Toe Platforms, from
Wittner Venice, $179.95

Begian label Ann Demeulemeester now has an almost cult-like following of her lace up booties that are like a cross between a boot and a sneaker... these are not for those who like to play it safe! Not sure if they'll take off in Australia yet, although I've seen a pretty good lookalike at Zoe Wittner for only $199.95.
