Balenciaga–Let’s Play Tetris.
“What was your inspiration for this collection?” A required question that the designers are asked each season. After the Fall’10 Fashion Week, I think they should be asked the same question about the footwear they put onto the models. The shoes, have been getting just as much attention as the clothes being showed on the runways. For some of the designers, the reaction from viewers would be the tilting of the head and a raised eyebrow.
This past week the Parisian designers outdid themselves. I had to wonder what they were thinking and mumbled that notorious question under my breathe. Unfortunately each of the following designers were not available to answer me and my imagination started to run wild!
Chanel–Big Foot. Givenchy–Little Red Riding Hood.
Marni– The Woman that Lived In Her Shoe John Galliano–Ax Men
Jean Paul Gaultier–Arabian Nights. Yves Saint Laurent–Last Of The Mohicans.

Here is the first look at a Stefano Pilati’s tote for the sixth YSL Manifesto.
Two thousand of these totes will be handed out—free of charge—in New York next Tuesday, February 16th. Similar drops will follow in Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Berlin. Photos of Natalia Vodianova in the Spring 2010 collection by the photography duo, Inez and Vinoodh are in the Manifesto, giving you a little something extra with the totes. Look out for these must-haves on the fashionable corners.
With all the designer shoes for Fall being so unique and interesting, they’re more than just heels to walk in, lead roles are what they are, taking the attention away from the clothes. So it was only right to cast them in of my favorite films.
Move over Fame, The Wizard of Oz is back with the four characters we love, and they each have their own signature looks. There is a little twist this time around though, after seeking help from the wizard, each cast member gets a little more daring, a wilder side and new looks will be needed.
