There are shoes from some brands that I know I’ll never buy but I’d like to look at them from time to time, as a way to admire their specialty, this means Vetements.
Get to know the brand
Vetements is a French clothing and footwear “design collective” and brand founded by fashion designer Demna Gvasalia in 2014 and designed by a collective including his brother Guram and five other friends who have previous experience at Maison Margiela, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Céline, and Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Arts. Championing a more ‘pragmatic’ approach to fashion, Demna reflects the ‘down to earth nature’ that he says is reflected in what today’s youth wear. Operating from a philosophical and methodological approach to his designs, Demna propelled Vetements to world class status in just three short seasons. Vogue has stated: “Part of the genius of Demna Gvasalia’s Vetements is its appropriation and refinement of mass culture into tongue-in-cheek garments.” Luxury vendors who stock the collection include SSENSE, Net-A-Porter, Browns Fashion, and Matchesfashion.
Get to see the boots
The entire boot is made of a special fabric, it’s superb shiny. Women like shiny things, it’s something in the women’s gene.
Luxury products are not only beautiful and gorgeous, but more importantly not practical. The icon shoes have to be unbearable for walking, so people who have to work can’t wear them. This is to distinguish the rich from the ordinary. Me, I’m an ordinary person, so even I buy such boots once, I won’t do it once again, simply because they’re no more than decoration, for me.
But I enjoy looking at them, as if they represent my dreams.
