twitter instagram The Rose And Her Clothes: Shoe mad


Shoe mad

I think it's fair to say that shoe designers went a little bit crazy when it came to designing shoes for S/S 13, if you don't believe me. Take a look...

Celine: turned into Cruella Deville, the Cookie Monster and Elmo were among her victims. Of course I am joking, neither were harmed in the making of these shoes, thank god.

Prada: They didn't just create a shoe, they created a shoe combined with a fit-the-shape-in-the-hole game, who knew sandals could be this much fun?! To save disappointment, these shoes do not come accompanied with various different wooden shapes.

Celine: I have nothing to say other than please do not wear with a tan.

Alexander McQueen: Finally a shoe that creates a convenient way to store your precious gems and jewels! Thank you McQueen, thank you!

If you haven't noticed so far that I've been very sarcastic
a) you need to pay more attention 
b) sar·casm 
1. A cutting, often ironic remark intended to wound.
2. A form of wit that is marked by the use of sarcastic language and is intended to make its victim the butt of contempt or ridicule.
3. The use of sarcasm. See Synonyms at wit.

However, there was a designer that in my opinion, just smashed all the others out the window. Not because they created the wackiest shoes. They managed to create such beautifully unique shoes, yet without taking away that element of desire that I feel so many designers did. 

So thank you Fendi:

So there you have it, congratulations Fendi you win the award for the most well executed weird shoe. The colours were striking, the heels were bold and the strips of leather over the front mimic the roof of the Sydney Opera House. What could be better?


  1. Thank you for the comment! And congrats to us both for starting our blogs! I had to Google the word "brogue" - it means shoe apparently! Let's follow each other. <3
