That’s right; you have graduated to a level of rock chick that wears that shit day and night. Also, you need something to trot around upcoming fashion weeks in, and so the higher the better, s’il vous plait. Check out the following, oh leather-clad ones….
Hardware to the max, these tough talking stilettos even have scary monster-teeth soles to crush the souls of lesser mortals as you strut your un-contested territory of Style Super Queen. Team chains like this with an all black pallette to let the shoes do the talking, but you can play with feminine chiffon contrasts or emphasizing with leather and a tough-girl pout.
Ah Balmain, Balmain. To be the most coveted brand of the season… no file on rock ‘n’ roll style would be complete without an entrance from the Parisian brand. And so to work; these aren’t too high to be slutty and conventional, yet high enough to have a bit more attitude than an ankle boot, they are a bold statement with the undone zips suggesting loose morals underneath. And as we know, boots are pure versatility, which is just what a girl who lives off the back of her Harley Davidson needs…
Phi give us this kind of gothic buckled boot – avoid lank back locks, pale acne skin and a leather trench and you should be fine! Instead, team with a LBD of minimalist design and plenty of silver hardware for a fresh, modern look. The thick platform as a little added interest in the extra palette underneath, while the pointy toe is sure to lengthen any leg and add a dramatic twist to the simplest of outfits. Plus they look durable enough for even the coldest British winter.
Former ballet dancer-turned-accessories designer Pierre Hardy also works for the likes of Hermes and Balenciaga. This, from his own label, is for a kind of sporty biker girl – super thin stiletto versus trainer-esque lacing and strap? This will complement perfectly a body con/lycra legged look, while all the while keeping a serious edge with the super glam black patent shine.
Is there such a things as ophidiophilia? If ophidiophobia is the fear of snakes, I definitely am victim to the opposite sartorially. (Fear not; like any other normal human being this is confined to clothes only.) There is something very rock about this exotic skin – is it because as possibly the most hated animal, it’s like the bad girl wild child rock star? Well other reptile skins are just as rock, really, but the snake is for sure the most bad ass. Well enough musings; these beauties would look great with any all black funked up rock rebel playing slinky and subversive sex symbol. But the natural vibe of the skin also has lends a more boho, seventies rock look – something with a bit more brown, bronze and gold in it, fringing and loose locks, and keep the rock royalty feel with brown hued furs.
