ruby slippers

“If Dorothy were living in the 21st century, what would she wear?”
A while back there was a bit of buzz about the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz and various designers being asked to re-interpret the classic Ruby Slippers. The Ruby Slipper collection, to be unveiled during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, will be on display for one week at Saks Fifth Avenue. Above are some of the final products, with accompanying sketches. The Betsey Johnsons and Botkiers are my favourites. The Tibis make me hate my life. I’m keen to see what the Moschino ones end up looking like, and am also hanging out to see the Loubs and Manolos (not pictured).

    Thank you for posting this, I'm in love! The Botkier ones are my favourites, but i would also like to the Moschino ones "properly".

    Why haven't I seen your blog before?! I thought I knew all the voguette ones. You have such an amazing range of cute accessories, I'll be back!

    Aww thanks Rachael! The interweb's a big place, I guess it's pretty easy to miss a few things here and there. Also, I love your blog! I stop by every now and again, but am just lazy when it comes to commenting and the like. I guess I'll have to pick up my game XD
