Consuelo Castiglioni catapulted to fame the mythic “ugly shoes”, but no one has defended as Phoebe Philo these impossible shoes as a today must have in the closet of any trendsetter. Of orthopedic sneakers to Céline babouches, the latest hit of the French house. Philo has sentencing judgement: the babouche will be the shoe of 2016 and, if you don´t believe me, time to time.
The Céline Resort collection presented these amazing shoes as the new essential of our shoerack. A simple shoe without consistent soles, which is attached to the ankle with a single buckle.
Firms like Opening Ceremony and Narciso Rodríguez have add up to the trend filing Phoebe´s eccentric accent, making this shoe more commercial than it was.
With the babouche reaches the pinnacle of the trend that has been postulated since last spring. Chanel, Balenciaga and Michael Kors have bet on pointed shoes, and Proenza Schouler and Prada have recovered the midi heel of the 40s.
Don´t panic! Soon the street style professionals will teach you how to combine your new babouches. Do not miss the upcoming fashion weeks (and what is cooked off the catwalks), because they will give you the key to wear these fashion shoes as it deserves. May the force (and style) be with you.
