In the Showroom: Summit by White Mountain

Summit by White Mountain’s expertise in translating European trends for the U.S. consumer shines in the Spring ’17 line.

The brand, a subset of White Mountain Footwear Group, offers a deep range of Made in Italy footwear, including oxfords, open-toe boots and its bread and butter, ballet flats.

Oxfords with ample platforms are dressed up with metallic uppers, cutouts and brogue details. The brand adds an athletic look to the tailored uppers with sport-inspired white and black outsoles—a bold look that is extended to a range of flatform sandals with voluminous crisscross straps.

Flats are updated with fresh-looking square toes and wearable block heels. The Mod style is carried through in a range of Mary Janes with chunky heels and patent leather sandals with wide straps.

The color palette for spring is noticeable neural and transitional. Soft shades of metallic gold and silver, as well as black, white and putty are found throughout the line. Navy and deep red skew fall, however, pops of pink, blue and yellow offer an instant summer look.

The brand keys into the loafer trend Gucci began last year with loafer mules updated with tassels, gold hardware, textured metallic uppers and penny loafer details.
