When I predicted the arrival of flats 26 seasons ago (Garance is in Susan Miller mode), I never would have thought they’d reach such a deep layer of the fashion world. Take my friend Lisa Marie Fernandez, for example – there are over 10 photos of her on this blog and there’s not even one where she’s not wearing heels (except for the ones we took at the beach – we’re not at Hugh Hefner’s, after all), and now, all of a sudden, bam!!!
Ok, sure, she wears them Lisa Marie style, and that’s what’s interesting about it. With a big dress and super accessories, the sneakers are what make the outfit – and in the process, they make for a super young look.
Same thing with Stephanie in the second photo, the mastery of the sneakers + dress ensemble is happening right here just for you.
A revolution is underway, I say, and we’d better take advantage of it. Because just when this trend is finally starting to really be accepted and worn by everyone, its exact opposite is about to make a come back (now G is in trends mode) – and 12 agressive heels along with it.
But let’s not even think about that nightmare – let’s live in the present moment (now G is in Eckhart Tolle mode).
Right now, classic Adidas – Stan Smith and Gazelle, seem to have taken over all my friends’ wardrobes.
But what I really want is a pair of Nike Huaraches – they’re more technical and you can jump around in them.
What about you, which school of shoes do you belong to? Classic sneakers or bouncy ones?
