Trend Report: Green Shoes

In Fashion on May 4, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Shoeaholics beware: shoes are the new sex – well, they’ve  probably always  been. Thanks to the infamous Jimmy Choo trotting Carrie Bradshaw, the cruelest thing you could ever do is pry any woman from her beloved clobs. She’ll never go wrong with classic red and black, but with trends  flaunting studs, glitter and a rainbow of exotic in her face, it’s deadly. And everyone – I mean everyone – from the oldies (Manolo Blahnik) to the newbies (Brian Atwood) are demonstrating their undying love for a woman’s pretty feet.

We’ve just come out a slump economically, so lets celebrate by going green. It’s eco-friendly (figuratively speaking), symbolizes money (but think internal wealth, not material) and represents balance and growth. It’ll also persuade you to spice up your wardrobe as it means the ability to accept change.

last night, London’s favorite department store Selfridges, held an exclusive fashion showcase for Vivienne Westwood Anglomania in its car park. It was a night of fashion grunge meets the fashion elite as many British slebrities were in attendance including pop artist Tracey Emin and Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts all sat cluttered side-by-side in the dark and dingy (but artistically wonderful) setting. Daisy Lowe, opened the catwalk looking intently fashionable; the collection celebrated punk couture and Dame Westwood as she sat alongside her husband Andreas Kronthaler, in the front row.
