I think it’s safe to say that I shop a lot, which doesn’t really mean I BUY a lot of things but that I like to observe what’s going on in the shops constantly so I do my rounds practically everyday in different parts of London. So, I went into a mini state of curiosity when I came across these shoes by Harlot Harlot, a label I had never heard of being stocked at Office and shoe boutique Poste Mistress (owned by Office). Where did it come from? Why I hadn’t seen these before? Why do these very un-Harlot-esque shoes have such a name?
I’m more fascinated than truly attracted to them. I’ve never seen heels wrapped at the top like that. The shapes are a little odd and off-beat and most definitely belong to the ‘ugly-interesting’ shoe category (a description that seems to apply to a lot of the stuff seen on the catwalk for fall). I feel the same way about them as I do about Irregular Choice, another one of those ‘ugly-interesting’ shoe categories – I just never know which I way I’m gonna swing – completely loving them or being repulsed by them. Still, another day in London, another label to keep in mind.
