Trainers Trends for Spring 2013

 It might just be a reaction to the very high and unusual heels we’ve been seeing on the catwalk and some 80’s influences but I’m loving trainers on the catwalk. When I’m doing a film shoot all the crew is wearing sneakers but on a fashion shoot there will always be one of the assistants in towering heels. We’ve had a return of the oxford shoe and now trainers might just become a fashionista’s fashion statement.  There were 80’s white reebok trainers at Ashish’s show and the Nike Air Max at Moschino Cheap & Chic and Puma trainers at Junya Watanabe.

Lily Allen and Eliza Doolittle have both worn trainers in their videos, but I still love that Lily Allen wore hers with prom dresses.


Sneaking into Fashion: Tracking the Trainer’s Journey Through Popular Culture – This exibition is on until Sunday October 29th at the Covent Garden Piazza. You’ll see some fab trainers including the Kill Bill Onitsuka Tigers, Spice Girl, Mel B’s Buffalo Wedge trainers and Jeremy Scott X Adidas Originals.
