The 2009 Resort runway presentation for Chanel took place last week in Miami, and one of the most talked about items coming from the show were these the pistol-heeled shoes a few models had to strut in. Designers have been becoming more innovative with footwear lately and I love it!
Designer Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by an image of a gun he saw somewhere, and gave the image to Chanel’s shoe designer Laurence Decade, who used plexi to make the “Miami Vice” shoe. Ladies would you rock it?
And speaking of outrageous designer items – check this new Diorphone priced at $3,500! French luxury brand Christian Dior partnered with phone design company ModeLabs, to release a line of mobile phones, which include a miniature version (My Dior) that women can clip their purse or wear on a pendant (sOURCE).
There is also said to be a “deluxe model studded with 640 diamonds, which comes with an alligator sheath, runs up to 18,000 euros, or about US$27,000″. Ummm yea, I need a phone to make me travel through time for that much!
Last year, I did a feature on Dimepiece Designs which you can check out here. The ladies of Dimepiece sent me a preview of their Summer 2008 collection, which you can find at their website or Cultist Shop.
