When Anthony Vaccarello sent a shimmering pair of knee high boots down the catwalk during his A/W17 presentation, we magpies jumped for joy (and simultaneously regrammed it). The shimmering footwear was eyecatching and fabulous (thanks to being made with over 3,000 rhinestones) and its slouchy construction made them seem almost perfect for a casual lunch. We here in the Middle East appreciate a little bling at lunch after all...
And despite the fact that they're not due in stores for another few months, it seems they're already gearing up to the be the shoe of the season. WWD reports that Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman have both had to start a waitlist for the boot, with Saks telling the site it's had "many" requests.
"At Saint Laurent, the crystal diamante slouchy boot had such an emotional response to it. There's something to be said about glitz and glamour - it's the boot of the season," Roopal Patel, Sak's senior vice president, fashion director, said of the shoe, which is set to retail at approximately Dhs36,730 (USD$10,000).
Further proof they're the coolest shoe around? Rihanna was spotted wearing them earlier in March.
