The chunky heels of the season: Céline's Ruffle sandals

Anomalous allure

Swap your agonising stilettos for these pair of uncanny chicness

Count on the enigmatic Céline creative director, Phoebe Philo, for converting the oddest of shoes to the most covetable footwear trend that gets exorbitantly poached by fast fashion retailers: High-vamped glove heels, fur-lined Birkenstocks to orthopedic-looking sneakers — you name it. This season, the French house's Ruffle sandals aptly earn the limelight as the next It-unwonted shoes.

Reverberating the petals of a blooming flower, the elegantly swivelled vamp of the open-toe sandals is juxtaposed with chunky suede heels for a mix of Philo-esque quirk. They're diminutively bold that those who opt for safer classics could still go head over heels for these — while for the nonconformists in seek of statement-declaring shoes, a version with furry mink bracelets and marble stones embedded on the jewels indulges your penchant for the avant-garde. Either way, the Ruffle sandals guarantee a surefire hit for getting all admiring eyes on you — or your feet, at least.

The Céline fall 2016 Ruffle sandals are available at Céline boutiques islandwide.
