SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Monolo Blahnik x Rihanna

Rihanna launched her limited-edition shoe collab with Manolo Blahnik on May 5, and her fans managed to crash the designer’s website (again and again and again).  The collection features six different shoe styles, including a pair of $4,350 thigh-high denim boots with an embellished garter belt attached.  So, yes, denim assless chaps that are more expensive than most people’s monthly rent payments.

Oh!  But they come with a sketch signed by both Rihanna and Blahnik, so they basically pay for themselves (or something like that….right?).  Check ’em out for yourself below, and see how an editor at Racked styled them (before she was asked to leave the store) here.

Personally, I happen to detest western-inspired embellishments, denim boots, and, the real clincher, assless chaps, so I will not be snagging a pair of these bad boys anytime soon.  But hey, that just means one more pair available for those of you who love them.  On that note, I leave you with a shot featuring Jennifer Lopez donning a pair in her new “Ain’t Your Mama” video.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Moschino

Moschino would certainly never be considered a shy brand, and with Jeremy Scott as creative director, the brand has become louder and louder, which is not a bad thing in the fashion industry.  Check out these thigh-high leather boots with gold “Moschino” logo lettering emblazoned upon the buckles from Luisaviaroma.  One thing is for sure: these are definitely attention getting.

Boy London: The Hottest New Thing?

Recently, Rihanna was on the Jonathon Ross show looking adorable in a full-on Boy London ensemble.

And then, there was the trendsetter Nicki Minaj rocking the label:

I started to take notice of the brand and did a bit of research.  Basically, Boy London was founded in 1977 by Stephane Raynor and developed a cult following, worn by the likes of Warhol to Madonna.  The store opened on Kings Road, where Billy Idol worked the till and Phillip Salon made the tea.  The brand had become a movement, with the label becoming the uniform of the acid house movement throughout the 80s and 90s.   Once they reached the height of their fame, the buckled beneath the demands of the international buyers list.

The label lived on through word of mouth and charity shops and thrift stores; the coveted needle in the proverbial haystack.  But alas!  In 2007, a store emerged in East London called “SICK” and with it emerged Boy London.  The store, equipped with a unique, shape shifting whirlwind of basement parties, living art instillations and design studio.  The store sells out on a weekly basis, proof that the brand remains as influential as ever.

Although the store may be selling out, I found a couple different online shops that carry some adorable pieces from the brand, and you can find the top picks underneath the jump!
