Is it just me, or have many designers forgotten the meaning of the phrase ‘Ready to wear’ during the Spring-Summer 2010 runway shows? I know the runway is about drama, but more actual wear-ability in RTW lines would be nice to see.
Am I being too judgmental?
Perhaps I am in the minority here, but, I am willing to take the risk of being called ‘unfashionable’ (or worse) when discussing the footwear that made it’s appearance at this week’s Louis Vuitton RTW runway show.

Called “terrific—modified clogs, moccasins and penny loafers, with kitten heels and feathery tufts” by Cathy Horyn at the New York times – I must, respectfully and vociferously, disagree!
We are, after all, speaking of these shoes:
And, painfully, all of these:
About the only thing I liked on the runway was the playful beaded take on the classic LV monogrammed bags (Which, if you take off that over-sized, fringe tassel, is kind of adorable):
Let me be clear on this.
I love that Marc Jacobs is unpretentious and playful with fashion. Really, I do.
And, the idea of LV embracing MJ and adding a bit of play into their line is a nice idea – in theory.
But, please……..Let’s hope designers and fashion houses remember that we regular people need to do more than look at our fashion. We need to be able to wear it, too.
