The change of season brings the wonderful opportunity to update your wardrobe – and Mikko Shoes does it in style with a sophisticated new offering of European style. We asked Mikko’s founder, Michaela Longstaff, to share what is inspiring her about the new season trends.
Channel Magazine: First, tell us about Mikko!
Michaela Longstaff: We’re a family-owned business that started in 2013, right here in Milford! We offer an extensive range of European, quality shoes for women who want comfort and style. Our lovely in-store team is well trained in fitting and styling and we have an online store too.
CM: Can you sum up the winter season style for us?
ML: There’s so much to love! This season is our most indulgent yet, with inspired updates to timeless silhouettes. It’s all about gorgeous texture, sumptuous finishes and a deep, moody palette. A modern take on old-world tactility.
CM: What new trends will we see at Mikko?
ML: ‘Nordic Forest’ brings our evergreen love for the lush tones of nature into a new focus, with a muted take on the trend – think mist, moss, sage, and olive.
Pale, creamy ivory and vanilla add an elegant sense of lightness and contrast to winter dressing in ‘Panna Perfection’ – while ‘Noteworthy Neutrals’ bring warmth into every look, from taupe to toffee and chocolate brown.
Key style trends start with ‘Urban Trail’ – an updated take on last year’s lug sole sees inspiration taken from the great outdoors, with overt lacing and tactile textures, while ‘Forever Retro’ is for the lovers of leopard, flared heels and bourgeois brown – perfectly nostalgic when paired with head-to-toe knitwear.
The ‘Chain Effect’ trend brings a modern chicness to new season courts and loafers, while the ‘She’s A Lady’ collection heroes iconic feminine styles with decadent hardware accents.
Of course, as with all new collections, no matter the trend, the offering prioritises long-lasting quality and divine comfort – our non-negotiable for every pair we select.
CM: Are there any surprise favourites?
ML: Our cosy house shoes and slippers are flying off the shelf - a sign of the times perhaps with us being at home more. We have a new range from Spanish label Macarena which has been super popular, plus luxurious slippers from Ara and Gabor from Germany – all are a joy to wear.
