Just in case you hadn’t noticed, active-inspired footwear is having a major moment right now. You’ll be hard pressed to find a collection this season that doesn’t take a few cues from the world of sports. For that very reason, it’s a great time to be Dirk Bikkembergs! His design philosophy has always been to combine the best of fashion and sport, so his S/S 13 footwear offerings are more on-point than ever.
The label offered three main silhouettes: the slip-on trainer, the active sandal and the lace-up court shoe. Bikkembergs relied on a palette of neon orange, pink and blue paired with white and black to create a sharp, sporty contrast. Sandals were modernized with mesh and patent straps and oversized buckle hardware. Almond toe gored slip-ons in eye catching colored snakeskin were a focal point, blending the ultra luxe and the ultra athletic in a way that only Dirk can.
