It's Sunday morning, so let's talk shoes! Grab a cup.
At Olivier Theyskens' recent show for Nina Ricci, the talk was less about the clothes and more about the shoes.
No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. Those heels are dangling several inches off the floor.
To be perfectly blunt (which is TOTALLY uncharacteristic of us, right?) we think these look ridiculous. Worse, they look deliberately designed to be painful. They're ugly, both in form and in idea. Theyskens has been reported as being on the outs with the house and this may have been his last collection for them. Was it a big "fuck you" on the way out the door? It's a shame, because the clothes got good reviews but all anyone can talk about is those ugly shoes - and not in the good way. More in a "Did you see those ugly shoes?" kinda way.
Surprisingly, the models can actually walk in them:
