They will see us waving from such great heights, “Come down now”, they’ll say…

>> Like I said in the previous post, I've finally woken up from some silly motion-going stupor and have rediscovered my fashion enthusiastic ju-ju-juice.  Yesterday we took a little detour to Digitaria, definitely up there in the most-interesting fashion retail ventures in London.  Their guest-designer roster seems to have grown a fair bit since I was last there including the likes of Katie Eary (did her S/S 10 collection floor ya, did it, did it?), Gemma Slack and Ada Zanditon.  I didn't realise however that designer Gabriella Marina Gonzalez, who I thought had already graduated, and has only just finished her BA at CSM, is also being stocked at Digitaria… with her super lace-up wedge shoes grabbing my attention immediately…

After walking with stable feet in Acne's Atacoma wedges and finally being able to confirm their comfort factor (walked fifteen blocks on the trot and kept them on all day… c'est proof or not?), I've now developed a somewhat blase/fearless attitude towards platform wedges but I'm guessing these will prove more of a challenge… still, Digitaria dares to sell them so somebody will be towering and looking at us from those great heights…

Gonzalez describes her collection as 'clothing for the emotionally dispossessed' and together with her sketches, you can see how she's imagined this female ragged, urban warriror complete with fear-inducing footwear, armour-like harnesses made more vulnerable by the patchwork imperfect knitwear and the girlish knee highs…

  2. OMG. I love moon shoes. Echoing another poster, what are the price points for these massive babies? And did you get to try them on?? Are they more in line with Demi Moore in “Striptease” or Buzz Aldridge?

  3. Woohhh!! What a shoes!! I knew somebody who loves to wear those kind of shoes. I think my niece loves to wear and collect those kind of shoes. I will tell her about it. But me, ahhh, no way, I can’t wear those shoes. Hahaha…lol.

  4. They remind me of Chopines worm by 15th Century Venetian prostitutes, some of them reached 30 inches high so these are like childs play 😛

  5. Beast of shoes! Very challenging but you’d feel great mastering them and parading around. I did it before in my Westwoods so I can do it again! The gorgeous olive green ones are for moi.

  6. AestheticallyI love the wedges, but I can’t help sort of feeling that the new wave of crazily high shoes are a new way of baby-fying women, making them totter in baby steps, unable to run, having to grasp the arm of someone else just to stand up straight? Not that it’s these shoes in particular…just a thought.

  7. ahh i want those shoes. i want those shoes. i want them! now…
    i ll keep repeating this mantra until someone hits me with a frying pan.

  8. There are so much beautiful things out there. I just like to walk around for hours and look. I actually don’t shop that much, but walking around stores and just touch, and feel makes me calm and gives me some kind of comfort.
    And you are just amazing finding all these adorable pieces all the time.

  9. Do you have these shoes? I think that is awesome. I don’t think these look uncomfortable at all because it looks almost flat, it just has a thick platform. How much do these cost?

  10. Sit on your porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs; search for knowledge,read more, I think that is very meanful for you because today is important.
