When a trend manages to be super repellant and unorthodox, almost preposterous at the same time, you can bet all your money on me falling for it. Or better yet, put your money on these furry shoes (my favorites are these Undercover and Senso pairs)- mostly sandals – that will keep your feet warm when you absolutely don’t need it at all (unless you are one of those street style star wannabes at winter fashion weeks). I am literally attracted to how ugly they look, I think this really is a fashion thing and I’m not expecting anyone to get it. If you do get it but don’t want to spend money on something you probably won’t wear next year, my solution is to get a strong double sided tape and a piece of old fur stole from a vintage shop, cut and paste it on your shoe of choice et voila.
I know they won’t even be in the stores for at least another 6 months, but the shoes were all I could think about during fashion month. Shoes are all I can think about most of the time. From Proenza‘s knots to Phillip Lim‘s laceups, Céline‘s square toes to Valentino and Rouland Mouret‘s zippers, Isabel Marant‘s buckles to Christian Dior‘s patent knee highs; there were a lot of trends to take note of but there was only ONE trend that’s worth the attention because Gucci & Maison Margiela & Fendi & Vivienne Westwood & Salvatore Ferragamo and Balenciaga said so, together: FUR. Fur is the only thing you should carry on, around and under your feet this fall.
