Designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s fashion line, No. 21, sparked the return of the oversized ’80s bow with the elegant ‘Ronny’ mule in 2015. Rihanna made it street with her Fenty x Puma satin bow shower slide this spring. Now the trend is becoming a go-to look for everyday sneakers, flats, boots and loafers for Fall ’17.
Brands offer the complete package by adding top and side bows to suede loafers, metallic slides and leather sneakers. The look is bold and deconstructed, leaving dainty ballet bows for another season.
