We can almost single-handedly thank Alessandro Michele and his Gucci team for putting the word maximalism back into the fashion vocabulary. In just over 2 years as the creative director of the Italian brand, Michele has created a renaissance of prints, textiles and silhouettes, taking it all quite literally – to the max. The Sylvie Web strap pumps are the perfect example and a great entry ticket to the Gucci universe. Between the signature strap, the bamboo heel, the metallic leather and the gold spikes, you don’t need much more. Add a pastel-coloured mini skirt, tie a denim shirt, and you’re good to go.

Gucci Sylvie Web strap pumps are available from Browns at £750.
