Beware, Smoldering Rodarte "Creatures" Ahead

Rodarte Fall/Winter 2010/11

Before I continued on with Milan, I must make a momentarily pause and enlighten your day with this post. If you follow fashion in a non-label-whore, non-pretentious kinda way, you might have seen the Rodarte show in New York about a week ago or so. Aside from the always cogitative presentation and ethereal clothes, the footwear this season (not that any other season was mediocre) was more cerebral than ever before. Flipping carelessly through runway pictures from the show may have cause you to initially miss these amazing little creatures that the models had on, but if you take a closer look and attempt to fathom what these creatures are, the thought of "wait a minute" may have crossed your mind at some point. The talented Tommy from JakandJil, captured these otherworldly creatures at their most dormant state (see below). I don't want to use the terms "heels" or "stilettos", since they seem like a understatement, so I guess I'll keep using the term creatures, were designed by one of the most imminent shoe visionaries in the business, Nicholas Kirkwood, so ladies (and gays) if you're not familiar with this name, you must get on the bandwagon NOW.

The shoes are so creatively put together, thus making it difficult to put them into words. The design features such intricate details such as these straps of suede wrapped around the toes; white, dusty purple and black leather panels on the side with triangular cut-outs, these cheeky miniature corsets at the front (which are better view on the above pictures); faux-croc leather at the ankle; and the sickest idea ever, melting candle wax on the heels. I mean these creatures are seriously on a different level. I don't know yet what's the retail price, but if I was a girl, or a fashionable tranny, I'll be kissing Nicholas and the Rodarte sisters their feet (ewww I can't believe I just wrote that, but you get the idea) for such wondrous gifts.

They have a McQueen-esque vibe about them! The first shoe gives me more life than imaginable and would so rock them! Paired with denim knee length cut-offs/boyfriend jeans, draped top, and jewelry. Such a stunner should be the focus of the fit. I'd also pair them with my wardrobe staples ( harems, crops, knee grazing pencil skirts (with crop), yo, I could off on these shoes forever!! Sweet post!
