Fashion: Miu Miu courts attention
Fashion: Miu Miu courts attention
All eyes might be on the catwalks in Paris right now, but the true fashion follower knows the place to look for the biggest trends is at the feet of the front row, where some of the world's most lusted-after handbags and shoes are tucked away. This season is all about the trompe l'oeil Miu Miu bootie, with a T-bar sandal drawn on it in glorious glitter. And this week sees the launch of a court-shoe version. Slick, smart and seriously stylish, these are sure to inject autumn with a bit of razzmatazz. £370, tel: 020 7409 0900, miumiu.com
