To the untrained eye, it may seem like fashion weeks are a whirl of parties, cocktails and opportunities to be snapped by the throng of trend-hungry street style photographers. That would be an inaccurate assumption; watching catwalk shows and chatting to fashionable pals is hard work and should be taken very seriously, which is why a pair of comfortable, stylish flat shoes is an absolute must.

Created by the always fabulous Charlotte Olympia, these truly adorable Kitty Loafers are the only pair of almost-flats we’d consider being fash-papped in this season – that is, when we’re taking a well-deserved break from dashing about in heels. The cute kitten heel (Kitty shoes, with a kitten heel – we like!) give a modish, ’60s shape to the pumps while the feline embroidery makes lots of fashion statements. These might include: “I am quirky”, “I am cool”, “I have a sense of humour” or even “This is as near to buying a pet as I’m going to get”.  Whatever statement you’re planning on making, the Kitty Loafers are very lovely and the deep berry colour makes them perfect to wear for the Autumn/Winter season.

What to wear with these deliciously fun flats? How about Co’s chic trapeze line gown for little evening elegance? Or you could always contrast the pinkish hue of the loafers with this teal-toned A-line skirt from Carven, paired oh-so-ironically with an animal print knit. Purrfect.
