I just finished writing an entire post about fashion designers, Victoria Beckham and their evident love for shoes with ridiculous heels, oddly placed heels, or no heels at all. And then I flipped through the Aminaka Wilmont Spring 2009 collection, shown recently in London. I had never heard of this particular line before, so I did a little research. It is named after the designers: Marcus Wilmont and Maki Aminaka. They are a London based duo and their range is very classy and yet super edgy at the same time. You can even buy their stuff on Net-a-Porter.
All this seems fairly straight-forward. The Spring collection had a much more futuristic feel to it than their past stuff. Here are a few photos of their recent line:
Ok, so you decided to wrap your models’ feet in ribbons. Who needs shoes anyway, right?

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Heels without Shoes! I am baffled. Completely and totally. This looks cool on the runway and I am all about wearable art. I totally get the concept that some stuff that designers put up there is not really intended to be worn (Gasp! Perish the thought). But can you imagine the ramifications of a normal(?) person owning these? Imagine: you are at a fancy cocktail party and suddenly you step down on an hors d’oeuvre gone rogue. Trauma ensues. You have to remove bits o’shrimp from the ball of your foot.
With all this taken into consideration, it’s clearly only a matter of time until Posh gets herself a pair.
