Sandals, mules, flats, slippers: it doesn’t really matter what you call them, but there is no denying that backless slip-ons are the shoe of the season.

First championed by Gucci, this versatile flat has filtered down to every label worth its salt, and today we get to enjoy the latest incarnation courtesy of CH Carolina Herrera.

The slip-ons are part of the autumn/winter 2017 collection

The pair is available in a monogrammed jacquard weave black or blue, but the best has to be the sumptuous red velvet, decorated with embroidered leaves in shades of royal, Persian and oxford blue (pairing red with blue is unexpected and, therefore, so much more interesting), and finished with grey piping. They are glorious.

The rich red colour and the pointed toe echo Moroccan traditional babouche slippers, lending an exotic - and extremely comfortable - air, while the forgiving flat heels make them perfect for seamless day-to-night style. Staying true to the maxim of founder Carolina Herrera, that true style is a mixture of elegance and complexity, these are a timeless addition to any wardrobe.
