Though you wouldn’t typically think of the English Puritans as a point of reference for your wardrobe, this season they are exemplary style muses in the footwear department. Don’t believe us? Just check out Marc Jacobs’ Pilgrim Heels, which laid the bedrock for the American designer’s fall collection.Made in lustrous gold leather, these loafer-like shoes feature a chunky heel, exaggerated tongue and, the focal point, a crystal pin brooch. Not the only designer to pay homage to the Mayflower passengers this season, Marc Jacobs stands in the company of fellow high-end labels like Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen and Lanvin, who each turned out coveted versions of the pilgrim-chic style. Want to mimic the look without breaking the bank? You can with a pair of over-the-top platforms from Jeffrey Campbell; now that’s something to be thankful for!
