this past five years in my life have been all about collecting fashion treasures
moments that created an impact in object design history, in my opinion.
personally, when i visited the Margiela boutique in NY last year i felt betrayed
it felt so clean and chic, far away from it's white DIY industrial lux mix identity
as a die-hard fan [if you ever get the chance to see Martin, let him know i respect him, please]
i've been scouting the pieces that in my opinion represent his ironic and so smart designs
and this shoes for me are the perfect example of that. [i also have them in red… the gemini in me]
here is the link for how the boutique looked and what it had in there back in 2010
not getting the disco heels back then [lets be real, they were archive piece and they were asking for more than i am possibly worth, so it had to be a no thank you, i'll-see-you-later type of situation]
yet, here we are, reunited at last
it only took a lucky ebay bid from me losing on them again, but the stars were aligned, we were meant to be.
so happy to have them, and believe me, i said it back then and i'll say it again
they are meant to be on my bookshelf. but we will go dancing one day ;)
i sort of want the melting disco balls by Rotganzen as decor for my living room!!!
[oh, i've got the matching disco ball bolero!!! post soon!!!]
