Christopher Kane is making crystal Crocs happen
Fashion loves an ugly-pretty shoe, but how far are we really willing to go?
Christopher Kane’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection showed at London Fashion Week today, and we imagine that after seeing a certain exiled accessory walk the runway, editors and fashion bloggers everywhere are in a bit of a conundrum.
Yes, models wore crocs. On the runway. At London Fashion Week. So does that mean they’re cool now? Only time will tell. Perhaps the embellished Croc is this year’s Céline “furkenstock.” When Céline debuted the quirky pair of fur-lined sandals at their Spring 2013 show, the shoe drew mixed reactions. Little did we know, that was the moment that started the slow and steady burn of the fuzzy shoe trend, and now we’re on a wait list for a pair of Gucci furry loafers. And that, friends, is the magic of fashion: The ability to take something ordinary and downright forgettable and make it fresh and desirable.
Take a look at the earth-toned, gemstone-embellished versions Kane collaborated on, and decide whether or not you will be picking up a pair when they eventually go on sale.
