Fashion Notes: What I Want
Posted by EZE, Saturday, April 26, 2008 11:23 PM (Eastern)

I truly love this sandal. It reminds me of the lines found in 90s minimalism. I think this shoe could easily have come out of that time, which is fine by me. That's my favorite period of fashion.

I love the lines. To use the obvious word, they are minimal in the best sense. Not a single line is wasted, and every one flatters the foot and the wearer. It could easily be worn with daytime shorts or a full-length, flowy gown.


Dictionary.com lists the definition of the word elegant as "displaying effortless beauty and simplicity in movement or execution." This is the definition of an elegant shoe.


It's also $540 at Barneys. Honestly, if I had the discretionary income, I would blow it on this shoe, that's how much I love it. That said, I would really be blowing it. Sandals simply don't last that long. To be fair, designer sandals may fare better if they really have superior construction and materials. But this shoe simply doesn't look sturdy, no matter who made it. It's essentially strips of leather on a leather-covered board.


I guess it's no great loss. Anything wrapped around my ankles only makes my legs look bigger than they are, and that's not very minimal, is it? Still, I'm not much of a shoe gal, and it takes something special to get me this pumped about them. So keep in mind, my birthday is in late November, and I am not above bribes and favoritism.

I believe Pierre Hardy did a minimalist sandal for a collaboration for the GAP. It was $98, iirc.

$78, actually. Size 8 left only, unfortunately.
