The trend for ‘barely there’ high heels shows absolutely no signs of slowing as we approach the summer months, with women going crazy for the minimalist, no-nonsense style. Thin straps and skinny heels dominated the catwalks at Fashion Weeks across the globe; Alexander Wang led the pack with his understated, modest black leather heels.

Brian Atwood’s slinky Labrea heels combine ‘barely there’ style with a clashing colour palette to create this summer’s staple look; our mouths are well and truly drooling at the sight of these snakeskin single-sole heels with a crescent heel. Pair with tailored trousers or a fitted midi dress for the perfect antithesis to the platform pumps which have been at the top of wish lists for the past few summers.
