I’ve been mulling over Senso’s Neve wedge for a while now, and I couldn’t put down exactly what was so familiar about them. After going cross eyed at my laptop screen, it finally hit – the wedge shape was incredibly similar to Acne’s Admire buckle booties.
Though the Senso pair are a wee bit shorter, the shape of the boot is definitely alike. For the money value, Australia’s Senso are the clear choices.. that is, unless you happen to have $900 laying around for a new pair of kicks.
Striped tights have been done every which way, and they’re in no way done. Check out Wolford’s bandage striped tights – there are two colors; tan/black and white/black.
Each pair of tights will set you back $65, but hey, they’re bound to get knocked off in a few weeks by the high street.
I’m yearning for the tan and black combo.. can you imagine layering those with some lace or even some army fatigues? There are endless possibilities!
Brown fabric boots with a wedge espadrille heel – what could be fuglier?
These are the Jessy 85 boots by Christian Louboutin [of all designers], and these are some kinda ugly. Not only are these things visually offensive, but these fug footcovers are $585.
Check this out.. it’s the leather aviator cap by Oak NYC’s Black Label, currently on pre-order. It has a shearling lining, and is one of the most perfectly eccentric accessories featured in this coming season.
I purchased a pleather aviator cap – with a chin buckle and everything – at Value Village about a year ago for $4, and it was the best statement thing to wear. Seeing one in textured lambskin lined with sheepskin is so exciting.. oh Oak, you slay us all.
M.A.C. was insensitive to the obvious plight of Mexican women in Juárez, and has decided to not ship their upcoming cosmetic collab with Rodarte.
They’re still donating the projected proceeds from the sales of the Rodarte collection to the women of Juárez (a charity has not been chosen as of yet), though for an unknown reason they feel this uproar was a deal breaker for the collection sale.
Yeah, M.A.C. could have been more sensitive. Sure, these things could have been thought out before release and definitely avoided, but the bottom line is M.A.C. could have rebounded from this slip quite easily with half an effort.
Selfridges created a gallows where a McQueen creation hung only days after his passing [from hanging] and Barneys featured a bloody shooting display, but they didn’t close up shop – they met the public’s disdain head on, and continued to run their business.
At the end of the day, because the public wasn’t handled with their usual kid gloves, M.A.C.’s complete Rodarte campaign has gone down the toilet.
Where Jeffrey Campbells Meeker wedge bears heel architectural similarity, there is no doubting the influence AllSaints’ designers were experiencing when they created their Kalman wedge was Finsk.
While the heels are quite similar, the coloring of the two pieces is identical – both pairs have stained black wood, as well as a natural wood color. It all depends what you’re looking for; a shoe or a boot, and an AllSaints or a Finsk!
Animal prints are a heavy hitter come fall, but the same ‘ol printed pony heels or purses can be a bit of a drag every fall. It’s time to mix things up, and what better way than to celebrate three of the hottest animal printed pieces that are a little left of convention.
First and foremost, we have 3.1 Phillip Lim’s giraffe printed bike jacket – a perfectly punk hybrid of the classic leather bike jacket, pumped with a bit of printed rabbit fur to keep everyone wondering where that amazing piece of yours is from.
Footwear can still be printed in animal style, with more creativity than the average classic Louboutin. Dolce & Gabbana’s leopard wellies and Jimmy Choo’s printed loafers are both fantastic pieces that are trending in their own right. Loafers and wellies are both hot in their own right, and with the pump of the print added, they are incredible statement pieces.
