SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Vetements

“I always look to the example of Comme des Garçons for what we want to do,” Gvasalia, the head designer of Vetements, explained in a Racked interview. “Steady but slow growth while doing things their own way.”

Vetements, pronounced vet-MAHN is the cool-girl, underground brand that debuted with a boom in 2014 (despite Lorde’s twitter feed officially calling the brand “uncool” back in May).  With a selection of hoodies, quirky t-shirts, and other miscellaneous items of clothing.  Additionally, they make some badass boots.  See below.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Vetements

Vetements, the ‘creative collective’ headed up by Demna Gvasalia, has applied its classic-meets-contemporary aesthetic to footwear. Think modern shapes and coloured details.

These baby blue boots are one of the standout pieces from Vetement’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.  They are created from a stretchy textile to look like a pair of socks, highlighting the athleisure trend that is everywhere this season.  The yellow and silver metal heel provides a cheeky contrast.  Wear them with a boxy dress or cropped silk pants to show off the design. VETEMENTS Sock ankle boots
