Saint Laurent’s Italian-Belgian designer, Anthony Vaccarello received a slightly lukewarm reception when he debuted his 80s infused collection but it seems he has finally struck gold or well in this case, silver and glitter as his Fall-Winter 2017 boots have nearly broken the Internet.
The ultra glittery fit-for-studio-54 boots that opened YSL’s Fall ’17 show come with a heft $10,000 price tag but fashionistas are far from deterred as the booties have already amassed a WAITLIST for the first delivery.
Vaccarello’s sophomore season came with the return of the original YSL girl: Gone are the rock n roll echoes of former creative director, Slimane’s aesthetics and back was the shoulder-padded sexpot glamor of the 80s. These slouchy pirate boots were the embodiment of that.
YSL wasn’t the only fashion house to flaunt glitter feet on the runway this season. We saw calf-length, square-toed silver boots at Chanel’s space odyssey ’17 show while Isabel Marant paired sparkly heels with glitzy socks. But the YSL babies stole our hearts in more ways than one.
The boots come in patent black, teal suede and brown leather but it is the bedazzled pair that are driving up the traffic in Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. Fashionistas and some celebrities in the likes of Rihanna, Cardi B, Anna Dello Russo, Marjorie Harvey and Blac Chyna have been spotted rocking the really amazing and mouth watering boots.
If you have $10K to cop out, I don’t see why you shouldn’t splurge on these bedazzled blessings from fashion heaven.
