Sparkle And Fade: Olivier Theyskens’ (Most Likely) Last Shoes For Nina Ricci
The shoes stole the show at Nina Ricci, where Olivier Theyskens put on what will most likely be his swan song. The towering platforms with itty-bitty heels protruding from behind to help the models keep their balance as they teetered down the long runway made some of the girls look so tall and narrow they could’ve been on stilts. For the record, Antonio Berardi did a similar shoe for Spring 2008, but not in such daredevil proportions, and definitely not in hot pink glitter. What do you think of these babies? If they hit the stores, even in a modified version, would you wear them off-runway?
