And thank God they’re not Tabis…

February 13, 2009


Ever since I had the pleasure of browsing through the Maison Martin Margiela exhibition at MoMu back in Antwerp (a review of which you can find here) my appreciation for, and love of, his (their, for those of you who are loyal to the ethos) work has only deepened. Am especially excited about the arrival of the stunners (much more desirable than the tabis) pictured above, the limited edition MM nail heel boots, on Oki-ni next week. Of which there were only 150 pairs handcrafted.

No way do I possess even half the price of what they’re likely to cost but in the midst of economic collapse and a restrictive student-budget one can only remain resolutely positive. So. Some day I will combine these with those luscious, leather shorts shown by Givenchy for SS09, along with a crisp, white shirt with bib detailing and and another dose of leather in the form of my bespoke Lillian (lol!) leather bowtie. So, I suppose you could say I’m on my way…

    Its pretty cool to have that kind of background, who are those beautiful women around you? suits and boots are very nice too, going into a ramp is a like walking in a walking in the pedestal..
