We're all for Bottega Veneta's romantic 40s-influenced shapes, and Jimmy Choo's Victorian-style fierce lace-up boots

BOTTEGA VENETA
The set
Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera is, in non-fashion week times, a fine arts academy of repute. As we walked in, there were still students scurrying around the edges, even as men in suits handed out coffee and croissants.

The show
It was all about the shoulder, with a strong 40s shape influencing suits and dresses. Power shoulders and narrow waists – we foresee a return to the waist belt next season. The show closed out with a trio of stunning metallic dresses that – fingers crossed – we'll see on red carpet events later this year.

The presentation
Sandra Choi headed back to the 90s for this one, with a special dusky pink collection of boots and stilettos in crushed velvet and studs. Other prominent 90s themes: a new-style leopard print and many a star motif. There's a new focus on different heel heights, with everything from a gentle kitten to an ankle-crushing height, and a new heel too – narrow from the side, but with a sturdy, comfortable width. We fell for a Victorian-style lace-up boot that comes in gold or inky suede.
