T­here’s an art influence wafting through fashion right now, and it seems even footwear is drenched in paintbox colours. Heels, toes and straps are colour blocked in wildly contrasting hues in the vein of some modernist painter like Mondrian. While towering snowbanks and slushy sidewalks will prevent you from showing off these works of art right now, just looking at these juicy jelly-bean colours in their boxes should brighten up winter.
