Free Your Feet: New Twists for Autumn from Butterfly Twists

Clutch coveters, rejoice! Been reluctantly sidestepping the micro-bag trend in deference to your feet’s demands that you carry emergency flats at all times? A solution is nigh. Previous incarnations of foldable flats have necessitated considerable sacrifices of fashion for function, but when they make their way from the night buses of Piccadilly to the toes of Olivia Palermo, you know change is afoot.

Not only can Butterfly Twists’ new numbers be safely stashed within the chicest of mini-clutches, they’re oozing with style points themselves, courtesy of their brand new almond-toed design and trend-hitting detailing. So why save them for your after-dark cab dash?

From camo print loafers to tartan ballerinas, there’s a pair for virtually every ensemble – and every occasion. The range no longer stops at ballet flats either – for those late summer getaways, think suitcase-space-saving beach-to-bar strappies, and, for the last days of festival season – surely their masterstroke – foldable wellies.
