Fashion news is usually an amalgamation of it all — sometimes it’s surprising, other times it is pretty shocking. And one is obviously accustomed to dealing with all things extreme when it comes to sartorial reality. But earlier this week, we heard of something and now we’re not too sure how to react to it. French luxury label Saint Laurent (YSL) has just introduced sky-high heels in their A/W2017 collection. But wait, there’s the catch. These high heels are on wheels. Yes, you heard that right! YSL is now selling roller skate stilettos, and we think we might have already broken a leg just hearing that.
The two versions of this shoe include black satin pumps embellished with crystals and another pair of pumps with red patent leather complemented with black snakeskin. The other two styles are renditions in snakeskin, with one of the shoes featuring a pouting woman’s image. Oh, and don’t forget… all of these have wheels attached to it. Fierce, ain’t it?
Anthony Vaccarello has definitely taken reference from the brand’s 2013 collection, in which they had launched leather roller skate sneakers. But this time around, did YSL go a little overboard? Well, the thing about fashion is there’s always a taker no matter what the trend. Priced at a whopping $1,995, we’re not too sure where we’d ever sport these shoes. Perhaps on a Friday night when you’re trying to rush to a party post work. Or maybe after a disastrous first date. In hindsight, there are far too many options.
