Kathryn’s latest collection – Summer 21 – resolutely underlines her ability to surprise with bold, playful, aspirational designs. Here, a rich, tonal, earthy palette comes to life entwined with reptilian prints and croc detailing. Embossed metallic and bold monochromatic moments take charge across her classic silhouettes of best-selling styles.









An abundance of gold hardware accents and metal pyramid studs are this year’s party season essential, with favourite styles returning in the shape of the Coco Trainer, Leila Loafer and Kirsty Heel.

‘More is more’ is the theme as we celebrate the re-emergence of what Kathryn describes as the “classic party shoe” for Summer 21. Kathryn Wilson fans, prep yourselves for summer soirees ahead.
