The Material Boy #156
Lanvin Side Zip Trainers With Silver Captoe
I know I have been 'ignoring' the other luxury brands and have been obsessing over Louis Vuitton and my Monogramouflage Treillis Bag for the past week and more...too much of something is often an overkill and not a good thing to be:-)
So today, finally I broke out of the LV craze and got about to check out some offerings from other brands I love as well. Well, not a new brand to feature, but yet again, something so interesting from the ever reliable Lanvin for great trainers. Check out these Lanvin Side Zip Trainers! I love love the use of that metallic blue zip on the black suede! You dun see coloured zippers so often..much less on shoes! Matched with a silver captoe...it is such a refreshing combination. WOW. Lanvin is fast becoming my favourite RTW brand. The bags may not make it to my list of bags to lust yet..but the shoes and clothes are definitely something to look out for!
The big ring zipper pull design reminds me of what I have seen in the Jil Sander Spring 2009 runway. It appears everywhere on the zippers in different shapes on the Jil Sander clothes of next spring summer season. So in a way, you get to flaunt this pair of sandals for 2 seasons at least and stay on trend!:-P Hehe. But seriously, this pair of trainers should last for a long time without going dated in just six months down the road.
(13 Sep 08 - I did my rounds of shopping at Club 21 Men's today...they stock this pair of shoe with another beige colour version. Gorgeous! Buy them for SGD $969. Lanvin shoe prices are that ridiculous!)
