SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dior

“Women, with their intuitive instinct, understood that I dreamed not only of making them more beautiful, but happier too.” -Christian Dior.

 

Dior is known for their high-quality, intricately designed pieces.  A shining example are these Cognac Calfskin Ankle Boots by Dior, a perfect boot to accompany the autumn weather.  They first debuted in the Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 runway show, and are composed of calfskin and crocodile.  The construction was inspired by the Opanca technique, an old-fashioned way of constructing shoes in which they are hand-sewn and use a double needle sewing technique to attach the sock lining, sole, and upper part of the shoes to each other in one process.

Rest in Peace, David Bowie.

David Bowie was an incredible fashion icon and so much more.  In honor of his very sad passing this past Sunday, here is a throwback to a post made way back when Trends & Tribulations was in it’s infantry, highlighting the actor, singer, songwriter, producer, and painter as a fashion inspiration.
