Every so often there emerges a designer item that you just can’t get off your mind; for me, this is currently the Gucci Princetown loafers. If you’d have told me a year ago that I’d become obsessed with backless loafers I would never have believed you, but these shoes have captivated me in a very profound way. Whilst I love the whole array of designs in the range (fur lined, brocade, metallic), the classic black won my heart. The only problem is that I was never going to be able to shell out for the real deal.
Imagine my joy when I discovered this River Island version; in soft supple leather and snaffle bit detail, it was love at first sight. The perfect dupe!
