Dries Van Noten



I'm always complaining about the lack of great shoes or the lack of good detail shots of footwear after a fashion month is over, but in retrospect there was quite a bit of both on the SS 2011 runways. The almost-wedge appeared in a few shows this season; at least that's what I call these really chunky heels with a little bit of space left open between the toes and the heel.

I really like the soft shape of the Dries Van Noten shoes, and appreciate the quirky charm of the Fendi pairs, but I think Chanel missed the mark on these. They feel a bit cheap and awkward, not at all what I like to associate with the brand. One hit and one miss from Karl, I guess.
