You’ve probably heard by now about the Great Wall of China Fendi extravaganza. No? Then go read about it immediately. I have to admit: a really, really gutsy idea! Not the mention, now it’s going to be so much easier (and faster) for all those Chinese Fendi-knock-offs to flood the market!
At any rate, I was, surprise-surprise, concerned with the shoes. As it was usually the case this year, the point of interest lay in the heels, and Fendi’s gimmick is this chunky-chain heel. I have to confess I wasn’t impressed with either the height, which made models scrunch their toes for dear life, or the way the straps wrapped around the foot. In all honesty, it made some of the models look club-footed, especially from a distance. I’m not a fan of the chained heel either. I find it gimmicky, precious, and ultimately…meh. What do you think?
