Love At First Sight: Robert Clergerie Douz Platform
What: Court Shoe Vamp + Platform Oomph = Le Chic Parisienne
Why: All that French fashion on the runway has got me in the mood for la mode; Robert Clergerie’s Douz platform fits the bill to a T. One of several platform styles in Clergerie’s pre-fall collection, which was inspired by Edith Piaf, the Douz in particular summons the subdued glamour I associate with the bon chic, bon genre. Also, is it just me, or is there something refreshingly simple about its court shoe-style vamp? I’m not at all ready to give up my platforms—and the Douz’s is sinuously substantial—but it’s nice to see a clean silhouette with no bells and whistles. (Or buckles, zippers, fake fur, etc.…)
Where: $750, at Robert Clergerie stores mid-summer.
