#pfw These Boots Weren’t Made Just For Walking Oh No. No, No, No, No, No, No, No!

It is Anthony Vacarello‘s second collection with Saint Laurent during Paris Fashion Week and it is the second time around that all the girls freak out over a specific item straight from the runway, creating a fuss very well previously planned by the marketing department.

This is a thing brands started to do lately, have you noticed? Working on a single piece that will blow up the internet and not necessarily from the sales’ point of view, but rather of the name, oh! The name is on the lips of every fashionista.

The pieces? More on the lips than on the body.

The heart from s/s ’17 was somewhere around 10k, the boots from f/w ’17 have to be somewhere in the near vicinity. Of euros that is. But after the previous “somewheres”, here come the “anywheres”. Because you could go almost anywhere wearing them.

People around you will be so amazed by them, that you will be able to – in fact! – wear the boots with your pajamas and no one will tell anything anyway. Because here comes the anything and the anyway. You must literally don’t give a fuck while wearing these boots. The model wearing them doesn’t fo sho’. Give a fuck.

She seems not to care too much about wearing them, either. Which is pretty sad – considering- but maybe she’s not that fond of the styling and that’s why the face. I would – probably, the slightest probability of the “probably” itself – be the same if I were to wear this motha’ fuckin’ boots and then the most boring skinny, shiny (and leathery?) jeans along with a silver, shimmering sweater to match my… My, my! Disco boots?! Oh no! No, no, no, no, no, no.

But maybe she just doesn’t give a fuck. She has the boots (even if just for 10 minutes, not 10k) and the rest is… Whatever! Because here comes a “whatever”, too.

And an anyhow. Anyhow, these boots are made for dancing. You can not wear them boots and not dance.

My mind is dancing as we speak now. See? This is the effect this kind of clothes and shoes have on oneself. It makes one’s eyes roll and take the shape of the heart. Precisely the shape of the former Saint Laurent “it” piece.

Eat the heart and dance.

Wear the the heart, be the heart!

Whatever!

Just dance!

#lfw2016 The Kitten Heel: Who Does It Better?

#lfw2017

“What does it better?” sounds closer to the truth and to the truth we must be heading when trying to answer it. “Who does it better?”, though, kind of sounds better. It does?

The “battle” is between the fashion shows and the street style when it comes to launch a trend. Not that trends are the dictators, I think we passed this phase when we all realised that personal style prevails fashion trends.

But. But!

When we all seemed to have calmed down with the trends va-va-voom, post fall 2016 fashion shows a half a year ago – due to the fresh emerging clothes down the runways – boom! You can ignore the previous “fresh”, because it is nothing (and we all thought it is impossible; nothing is, apparently) compared to the fresh trend that has just emerged for this fall, during the Milan Fashion Week in progress.

Off the street style.

– The queen of kitten heels is Emmanuelle Alt

Or that of Chanel, Mansur Gavriel, Jimmy Choo, Balenciaga, Prada, Valentino and so on?

Both. I guess it’s chemistry. Chemistry is everything (and sometimes, not this times, yes, timing is a b*tch). Ladies and gentlemen, the kitten heel!

Its popularity started with Audrey Hepburn back in the ’60s as a rebellion against the stiletto (?!)(?!). The oh-so-small heels were introduced in the ’50s for teenage girls as trainer heels (?!), whatever that is. Nowadays, the white sneakers are used – by the whole planet, not just teenage girls – for training, if by training we mean running from show to show. Fashion shows. Because this is where the kitten heels have been reinvented (again).

It makes sense, they’re comfy. And the sneakers mania has to be in the shadow for a bit, just in time for the big revival. The big trend.

Well,  it seems like the kitten is here to stay. Just like the stiletto. And the white sneakers. That’s not just chemistry, that’s ménage à trois. Whatever that is.

P.S.: mind the red top Natasha is wearing.

Eeeeooooeeeeoooo! The red alert.
