Chanel’s Version of the Platform

Posted in Shoes, Structure & Form by Michelle on January 4, 2011

Is this for real? WordPress says this is my 100th post? I must post a lot…

I love Chanel’s take on the platform for their Spring 2011 line. I especially love the knotted rib-caged platforms (below, at left) in yellow, black, and grey. I want! I want!!! The cutout at the heel totally revamps the old platform a la Skater Girl. Vintage inspired, no?

Barbie x Christian Louboutin ’09

Posted in Art, People, Shoes by Michelle on October 31, 2009

Christian Louboutin is styling Barbie for the Designer Series. I don’t know about you, but I used to collect the collectible Barbies with my mother, spending $250+, without a thought. I think it’s time to delve into our bad habits once again. And what could be better than spending money on a pair of plastic Louboutins? The Louboutin Barbie is very very limited. Only 7,700 being sold of the Jewelry Thief Barbie. All Barbies should be around $150.00.

To Buy and for Pre-order Events: Net-a-Porter and Barbie Collector.
