At a recenet Fall collection preview featuring the latest names in fashion woes, I was given the lowdown of where fashion is headed next season: towards classic style and comfort. Finally, my personal favourite was Bloch; a company renowned for its handcrafted technical dance footwear, but whose new line of shoes and boots translates functionality into fashion. Bloch excels at channeling the dancer in every urbanite while remaining realistic about the needs of their city-bound extremities (a.k.a feet). Their spanning selection of ballerina-like flats and kitten-heels are customizable to any style; whether your weakness is pink, leopard print, metallic or even bejewelled (by Swarovski nonetheless). Their jazz-shoe fuses the appealing split-sole shape of the dance shoe with a fashion-ready exterior available both in three styles of two-tone leather or a selection of solids, all with a slight back heel to maximise elegence.
