Last night, in a universe very different to my own, Lila Moss was getting ready with mum, Kate Moss, to attend Gucci’s Cruise 2025 show, which was held at London’s Tate Modern on the city’s Southbank. As the sun dipped under the horizon and lights began to glitter on the water of the Thames, stars descended on SE1 to take in the runway spectacle and, needless to say, they dressed the part.

Between Alexa Chung and Solange Knowles, both of whom opted for green lace ensembles, to Dua Lipa and Daisy Edgar Jones, who each chose to wear leather on the balmy evening, there were plenty of looks that caught my eye. However, for me, it was the shoes that stole the show, both on and off the runway. On it, we saw Creative Director Sabato de Sarno serve up ballet flats on mass, each adorned with Gucci’s signature horsebit detailing—the sort you’ll usually find on its iconic loafers. Indeed, Gucci has become just as known for its shoes as it has its legacy handbags, and last night was a testament to that, with many attendees wearing the house’s most covetable pairs.

Now is the time to bring Kate and Lila Moss back into the conversation. The mother and daughter model duo chose to wear some of 2024’s most elegant shoe trends: Kate in slingbacks and Lila in burgundy platforms.

One of the biggest shifts we’ve seen in fashion for a long while is the return to refined dressing, and these two shoe trends have been indicative of this movement. Thanks to their elevated-looking lines, slingbacks—be they kitten- or high-heeled—fit the brief, whilst burgundy is now widely considered to be one of the most expensive-looking colour trends of the year. We first saw it crop up on handbags—including the Gucci Jackie—but it didn’t take long for it to become the most predominant colour on shoes this season.
