A “homemade” pipe bomb — measuring six feet in length — was found late Sunday near Sri Lanka’s main airport hours after the deadly Easter attacks. The improvised explosive device was successfully defused by local authorities, according to the Agence France Presse. “It was a crude six-foot pipe bomb that was found by the roadside,”… News | New York Post
With a new season around the corner, we’re starting to look at the main summer fashion trends to dictate our wardrobe for SS19. And whilst we’ve already got the main spring bag trends covered, we’re all for updating our shoe game too. After all, as Marilyn put it, ‘give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world’.
As ever, we’re looking to the catwalk for inspiration, so keep scrolling for the top shoe trends to invest in this season, as seen at Chloé, Prada and Jacquemus to name a few.
It’s official, neon is back. While hints of bright coral, hot pink and flashy orange were spotted at the shows, lime green was the colour of choice, as dictated by Matthew Adams Dolan, Jeremy Scott and Christian Siriano.
Never has a sandal been so covetable. Designers like Versace, Mary Katrantzou and Ports all sent their models down the catwalk in barely-there sandals that somehow make feed look extra sexy without deterring from the clothes. Look to The Row and Neous for great buys, and Topshop, Mango and Zara for high street equivalents.
If you’re after a futuristic heel, then this trend is for you. Balmain, Chanel and Christian Dior have all designed boots, mules and court shoes with a simple perspex heel for SS19.
The maximalists amongst you will adore this trend, which was already big last summer thanks to Jacquemus (what trend didn’t he set?). Whilst last season was all about the wooden heel, this time round we’re injecting a bit of colour and metal in delicate shapes. Also look to Rejina and Balmain for inspiration.
Prim Mary Janes
Consider this the shoe equivalent of the lady bag trend. Miu Miu, Prada and Tom Ford have all re-imagined the Mary Jane (‘I thought it was an urban shoe myth!’) for the new season, in pastel shades with jewel clasp details, and classic black croc and white leather.
The kitten heel is here to stay, and we’re backing the styles seen at Rejina Pyo, Christopher Kane and Tibi. This low heel is deceptively flattering, both on short and long legs.
Shoes with tassels
Festival season starts early with these tasseled numbers. At Longchamps they were on gladiator sandals, at Coach they adorned trainers and at Oscar de la Renta they were the finishing touch on classic heels. Who knew they were so versatile?

Netflix teen drama Riverdale is in its third season and we’re completely hooked.
It’s hardly surprising therefore that the show’s hiatus, ending today, has been tough – going on for what feels like an eternity.
But Riverdale is officially back, and we want answers. Now.
Are Veronica and Reggie going to get together? Is there more to the Gargoyle King than Betty thinks? And what on earth is going on with the creepy farm group?
We need to know!!
But it wasn’t these questions that got the internet talking today after the airing of the show’s newest episode, ‘No Exit’. Instead, it was the morbid cliffhanger, with the show’s main character Archie Andrews appearing to die.
Yes, it looks like Archie Andrews is dead – and we don’t know what to do.
But how has he seemingly died? A bear attack.
Yes, this is not a drill. The gorgeous redhead survived the black hood and juvenile detention centre – he even managed to escape with a gaping stab wound – but he got killed by a bear.
Like most Riverdale shock plots, there are of course a lot of conspiracy theories out there, with some believing that he’s not actually dead, presuming that he has faked his own death to get Hiram off the scent.
Only time will tell though, so we’re going to have to wait till next week to find out the fate of the lovely Archie Andrews.
