A taste of the next autumn-winter season with some women’s and men’s models to keep in mind for your future purchases

It’s time to start thinking about next season’s wardrobe, about small pieces to add or replace to complete your outfits. First with autumn models, simple and light for a less traumatic switch from the summer, to then immerse yourself more and more in the cold period with sturdy and protective footwear. Here are 5 models for women and 5 for men that capture the essence of the styles of a/w 21/22. Remember them when you start shopping!

Watch out for the soles!

The stars of women’s footwear are still the soles, with treaded soles on moccasins, ankle boots of all types (from the biker, to the work, to the Beatle), and chunky soles for sneakers. Even the highest of high-heeled pumps have a platform and a chunky heel. The skinny cuissard boot, in stretchy materials, returns as one of the must-haves of the season. A glam rock touch is added through chains that reappear on moccasins and ankle boots.

Sport chic, for men

Traditional models are revisited in an urban key with soles with more accentuated thicknesses working as a common thread linking loafers and Chelsea boots. If you are looking for timeless elegance, it is the season of the Derby, Monk and Double buckle Monk, with uppers that are skilfully brushed and antiqued to obtain unprecedented shades and plays of light. Earth tones are in the limelight. Sneakers alternate between minimal, monochromatic design and more aggressive, multicolour variations.
