The Look @ GDS: Adventure Island

The Rivet 50 is calling for nominations for leaders in the denim industry in 5 categories: design, influencer, leadership, sustainability and supply chain. Nominations close on May 23.

Imagine the shoes you’d have on if you were stranded on a deserted island. Now imagine the shoes you’d wear on a dreamy island vacation.

That’s the luxury-meets-adventure island story footwear brands touted at GDS. The Germany-based show featured au natural styles for men and women that were kicked up a notch with exaggerated outsoles, heaps of tassels and animal-like textures.

Washed colors, tie-dye effects, distressed suede, oily patches and worn-in canvas keyed into the lost at sea vibe, yet the sky-high heels, supple leathers and artistry evident in some pretty intricate woven and stitching details didn’t fool anyone.
