The Material Boy #258
Givenchy Fall Winter 2009/2010 'Bondage' Shoes
In a dark collection that exemplifies Gothic inclinations and bondage fantasies, Riccardo Tisci once again turns out a collection of mind boggling alpha male styles which challenges perceived masculinity. Beyonds the 'editorial-inspiring' ready to wear, the footwear is also one of the focal point of his Fall Winter 2009/2010 Men's Collection for Givenchy.
Bondage is the theme. And the shoes sees themselves tightly wrapped around creating a 'mummified' design. The most 'disturbing' of course is the thigh high boots with glittery texture that definitely will be 'highly contested' item for all drag queens or attention seekers alike.
However, the low cut lace-ups offers a refreshing take on men's shoes design, and in fact could look uniquely interesting among the conventional offerings we see from everywhere. Definitely a collection for the bold and those who harbour 'fantasies':-P
I do want to check out the low cut versions. At least they look normal enough while being indifferent.
