Platform Sandals

Soaring Trend: Platform Sandals for SS24

Get ready to elevate your fashion game this Spring/Summer 2024 as platform sandals emerge as a key footwear trend of the season. From the runways to the streets, these bold and chic shoes are making waves, adding an extra dose of flair to your step.

In the fashion realm, platform heels have resurrected with a captivating allure, dominating both the runways and the streets with their commanding presence. This trend encapsulates a bold statement, merging retro nostalgia with contemporary flair. The platform heel is an undeniable trend. Owing its origins to the ancient Greeks these heels were then re-introduced to modern times by French fashion designer Roger Vivier in the early 1950s while he worked for Chanel. Vivier is credited with the creation of the stiletto heel and was instrumental in the relaunch of the platform.

The Trend 

Platform sandals are back with a vengeance, reaching new heights of popularity in the fashion realm. Designers across the globe have embraced this trend, incorporating elevated soles into their collections for Spring/Summer 2024. The catwalks were a celebration of creativity, with the likes of Chanel, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney, and Versace showcasing their unique takes on this nostalgic yet contemporary style.

Chanel's SS24 collection, spearheaded by creative director Virginie Viard, was a masterclass in sophistication. Platform sandals took centre stage, featuring quilted leather straps adorned with the iconic double-C logo. The interplay of classic Chanel elements with the modern twist of elevated soles created a look that was both timeless and on-trend.

Balenciaga, under the avant-garde vision of Demna Gvasalia, presented a futuristic interpretation of platform sandals. Chunky, almost architectural soles dominated the runway, paired with sleek, minimalist uppers. The result was a striking contrast that encapsulated Balenciaga's reputation for pushing the boundaries of conventional fashion.

Stella McCartney, a trailblazer in sustainable fashion, seamlessly integrated eco-friendly materials into her SS24 platform sandals. McCartney's commitment to environmental responsibility was evident in the use of cruelty-free leather and recycled fabrics. The platform sandals not only made a style statement but also emphasized the importance of conscious fashion choices.

Versace, known for its bold and glamorous aesthetic, infused platform sandals with opulence and sex appeal. Gold hardware, vibrant colours, and intricate detailing adorned the Versace runway, showcasing how this trend can seamlessly transition from day to night, making it a versatile choice for the modern fashionista.

Designs trends to Look Out For

While Chanel, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney, and Versace set the tone for platform sandal designs, other notable designers have also contributed to the trend. Gucci introduced platform sandals with an artistic flair, featuring intricate embroidery and bold patterns. The result was a playful and eclectic take on the trend that perfectly embodied Gucci's signature style.

Dior, under the creative direction of Maria Grazia Chiuri, opted for a refined and polished approach to platform sandals. The French fashion house combined elegance with a modern edge, showcasing sandals with sleek silhouettes and subtle embellishments. The result was a collection that seamlessly integrated platform sandals into the world of high fashion.

How to Style for Summer 2024

Embrace the versatility of platform sandals by pairing them with a variety of outfits. For a casual day look, take inspiration from the runways and opt for wide-legged trousers or a flowing midi skirt to complement the elevated silhouette. Consider combining different textures and patterns to add visual interest to your ensemble.

Transition seamlessly into the evening by choosing platform sandals with a touch of glamour. Pair them with a chic mini dress or a jumpsuit for an effortlessly stylish ensemble that will turn heads. Experiment with bold accessories to enhance the overall impact of your look.

For a more laid-back approach, consider channelling the bohemian vibes seen on the runways of Chloe and Isabel Marant. Choose platform sandals with natural materials like cork or jute, and pair them with a maxi dress or wide-brimmed hat for a relaxed yet stylish appearance.

Celebrities Setting the Trend

Celebrities have been quick to adopt this trend, making platform sandals a red-carpet favourite. The ever-fashionable Zendaya has been spotted rocking a pair with tailored pants, effortlessly blending comfort and style. Her choice of neutral-toned platform sandals showcased the versatility of the trend, proving that it can seamlessly integrate into both casual and more polished looks.

Rihanna, a fashion icon in her own right, has been a trailblazer when it comes to platform sandals. She has been seen pairing them with everything from distressed denim to elegant evening gowns, showcasing the trend's adaptability. Rihanna's fearlessness in fashion choices aligns perfectly with the bold and daring nature of platform sandals.

Steal Their Style

To channel Zendaya's laid-back elegance, choose a neutral-toned platform sandal and pair it with tailored trousers and a crisp white shirt. This effortlessly chic combination is perfect for a day out or a casual dinner with friends. Accessorize with minimalistic jewellery to let the platform sandals take centre stage.

For a Rihanna-inspired look that exudes confidence and glamour, opt for a bold and eye-catching pair of platform sandals. Choose metallic or embellished options and pair them with a sleek mini dress or tailored jumpsuit. Consider adding a statement clutch and bold earrings to complete the ensemble.

There are a few things to consider when choosing the right pair:

Consider the style, the height and also the event you’re shopping for. Make sure you can strut with confidence all day and night. Pair with a skinny jean by rolling up the cuffs to add a touch of coolness and go even further by opting for a tucked-in shirt or knit. To achieve that major trend of the Schoolgirl aesthetic, then why not go for knee-high socks with your platform heels? Bang on trend and super cosy! If you prefer a wide-leg pair of jeans rather than skinny ones, go extra long and wide or cropped and even wider. Mini or Maxi? Skirt that is! If you go mini then go high with your platforms. If you are more of a flowing maxi wearer then you can go a little lower and still look elegant and chic.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with textures and colours when putting your outfit together. Pairing a velvet platform heel with a leather mini can create an effortlessly cool and chic vibe. Likewise, a chunky knit with sleek leather leggings and platform boots is trendy and cosy. Choosing pieces in varying shades of the same colour can also create a streamlined appearance. Think monochrome madness!

Platform sandals are undoubtedly the 'it' shoes for SS24, offering a perfect blend of nostalgia and modernity. Whether you're stepping down Galway's shop street or Dublin's Temple Bar, these elevated wonders are here to make you stand tall and stylish.

The diversity in designs from Chanel's timeless sophistication to Balenciaga's futuristic edge, and from Gucci's artistic flair to Dior's polished elegance, allows fashion enthusiasts to find a pair that resonates with their personal style. With celebrities like Zendaya, Rihanna, and Emma Watson showcasing the trend in various settings, it's clear that platform sandals are not just a passing fad but a staple for fashion-forward individuals.

So, step into the season with flair, and let your fashion reach new heights with platform sandals! Whether you're opting for the classic charm of Chanel or the boldness of Balenciaga, make these stylish shoes your go-to statement piece for Spring/Summer 2024.
