A little S&M
Did you notice the striking similarities between some fashion footwear, as of late, and that worn for years by Women of the Night? Chanel did it a few seasons back, then Anne Hathaway wore them in Devil Wears Prada. Fall 2007 saw Burberry sending girls out in high-thigh-high patent leather boots and Karl continued the trend for Chanel couture fall 2007.
Now, I'm a fan of the thigh-high, myself owning a pair of flat grey/navy suede boots (pictured somewhere in the back items), but the look is a precarious one to pull off. What with hemlines shrinking (although fall 2007 seems to see a trend away from this) the line between dressing for a night out and dressing for working at night is being ever-blurred.
If knee-high boots have garnered the nickname, fuck-me boots then what can be instore for the ultra-high thigh-high?
A risky venture to be sure but when done correctly oh-so-sexy.
