Rain-ready kicks

With rain forecasts becoming the norm recently, we’ve picked out functional and trendy footwear that will have you looking and feeling your best despite the gloomy weather. Whether heading to school, the office, or to a local destination, you better have these pairs on your next rainy day outing. First is Merrell’s new colorways for Hydro Moc perfect for the ladies. These lightweight comfy clogs now come in stonewash and pine-marron combo, and are made with 10 percent BLOOM algae making them more eco-friendly. Another is Ked’s Rowan rain boots, made more playful with the signature floral prints and patterns, a product of its collaboration with Rifle Paper Co.

Designer running shoes

A modern and streamlined variation of a classic running sneaker, the Alexander McQueen Sprint Runner was first seen on the women’s spring/summer 2022 runway. It has a laced, metal-free white leather upper and an exaggerated rubber sole. Available in all white with a white counter heel or in white with a contrast black leather counter heel and in seasonal colors reflecting the palette of both men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, all are finished with an Alexander McQueen signature and three-dimensional McQueen seal.

Make way for a new icon

Straight from the fall/winter 2022 Michael Kors runway show, the elegant and understated Campbell is designed to be the ultimate carryall. Crafted from luxe Italian leather with top handles and minimal hardware, the Campbell is the epitome of pragmatic chic, boasting a soft suede lining, two inside slip pockets, and an inside zipper pocket framed in leather. It’s available in a size and color to fit every occasion—the black crocodile-embossed Campbell weekender bag is perfect for luxe getaways, while the camel pebble-grain leather Campbell satchel has an adjustable strap for day-to-night dressing. Crafted in Italy from fine leather in shades ranging from rich chocolate and vicuna to sleek black and slate, the Campbell is the forever bag you’ll want in multiples.
