MA&LO has been proudly making its footwear in Italy since 1952, taking style cues from streetwear trends and high fashion. Although the aesthetic updates every season, you can expect chunky shapes, tough-edged embellishments and a bold use of deep colours. Opulent fabrics and high-shine materials bring a flamboyant finish - we wouldn't want anything less.
Textured fabrics, chunky soles and sewn-on details are all hallmarks of the MA&LO collection. Despite their maximalist shapes, silhouettes are kept sleek. Androgynous aesthetics take centre stage, so these are shoes your other half might consider borrowing. During the chillier months, swap your usual work shoes for a pair of the label's block-heel boots. Team with a brightly coloured pleated midi skirt and a fair-isle-knit jumper for a hygge look, ideal for hopping straight out for an after-work coffee with your friends. When the weekend rolls around, team your boots with a pair of black skinny jeans and add a sequin top. A leather jacket adds a tough finish, just right for checking out the talent at your local open mic.
Jagged soles and metallic studs bring gothic drama to the MA&LO collection. For riot-girl attitude, team a pair of platforms with a white lace dress. Shrug on a denim jacket decorated with iron-on patches and slick on some red lipstick - ideal for grungy concerts or popping in for a snakebite at a punk-rock club. For a subtle monochrome look, choose a pair of studded shoes from the MA&LO collection and wear them with striped trousers and a black off-the-shoulder top. Finish with a trilby and some silver costume jewellery - a must for keeping vampires at bay.
