Indulgent, luxurious style from Mikko

There’s something that feels extra stylish about being wrapped up in layers, and with the cooler months descending we’re looking forward to the decadent and cosy wardrobe options that autumn and winter always bring. In honour of the seasonal shift, we spoke with Michaela Longstaff, founder of Mikko Shoes, to learn about what’s in store for AW24.

Channel Mag: Michaela, can you tell us how you would describe this season at Mikko in five words?
Michaela Longstaff: We have an incredible collection at Mikko this AW24 that we’re thrilled to share. To describe it, I’d say it’s deeply sophisticated, luxurious, warming, wearable and refined.

What’s the colour palette we should be embracing?
We’ve been particularly drawn to the indulgent warm palette that has emerged after a year of cooler, icier tones. Cocoa brown features in beautiful textures, fresh cream for brightness, and an ultra-gorgeous collection of rich reds, from cherry and plum to Bordeaux. Very vintage inspired. We love the way this particular family of reds pairs with neutrals. We’re also loving the innate elegance of navy and have ensured we offer a breadth of styles in this timeless tone.

And what are this season’s must-wear silhouettes?
As always, we look to bring in a wide variety of options to cater to the breadth of lifestyles our customers live. A non-negotiable for us is to ensure we are balancing the latest seasonal trends with practicality, comfort and quality. In silhouettes, we’ve embraced the fashion world’s deserving love for the loafer. At once luxurious and versatile, there’s everything from minimalist, modern options to highly embellished, head-turning styles. It’s part of our ‘Curated Poetry’ collection which is romantic, reflective and contemporary.
'Urban Nomad' pairs moody tones with heavy-duty accents; think the classic lug sole boots with lace-up fronts and zipper details, though this time, a little softer than seasons past. Finally, we have what we are calling the ‘Refined Futuristic’ trend; glamorous and textural, it features bold metallic finishes, high-shine prints and unexpected textile hybrids. Super luxe.

Are there any new brands we should look out for?
Actually, a returning brand, back by popular demand! Handmade in Spain, Toni Pons is back on the shelves at Mikko this season after a short hiatus, and we couldn’t be more delighted with their collection – they make the most beautiful quality footwear. We particularly love their polished take on the humble rain boot this season. A true must for the field side-line, or for running errands in the rain!
