Tough As A Warrior

Well another Monday and still no respite in sight.You have spent your whole weekend, glued in front of the idiot box which now seems to be your Bodhi tree of enlightenment.You keep jumping back and forth, from one business channel to another, fervently hoping for a little silver lining, some ounce of optimism somewhere, like Marius in search of Cosette.You find your whole little world caving in front of you, reports of days to come when its blessed to have food on table, so on and so forth.You think of all the long hours at work, the tough deadlines to battle and the warrior in you resurfacing yet again.This is no time for tottering in sky high stilettos watching your every step, but for some rugged practical boots like the one pictured above, to wade you through fall and the tough times ahead...

La Belle Et La BĂȘte (The Beauty And The Beast)

GUESS the beast!!!! Its a pity that GUESS should try to copy Yves Saint Laurent's Tribute Platform Sandals and the result should be so disastrous!! Yves Saint Laurent, please ignore this monstrosity and continue to rest in peace.Amen.

Tribal Chic

Well its that inevitable week of the day called Monday when spirits are low and any distraction from work is all so welcoming.The current economic crisis wants you to escape into the distant future where you hope things would be the way they were before the sub prime crisis, when life devolved around the single principle of "earn and burn".You dream of those days yet again and fantasise yourself walking in a shoe like the one pictured above, sipping a cool lemonade and resplendent in tribal chic.You think of the forth coming spring and shoes like this one that would accompany it and wish with all your heart that the financial crisis looming large now, would have disappeared by then and your dream of walking in feathered shoes with tie ups, colorful beads and an exotic heel becomes a reality.

P.S:The shoe featured here is part of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 Ready-To-Wear collection.Watch this space for comprehensive coverage of the collection.

Fall 2008 Ready-To-Wear - Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli's fall collection could have been mistaken for a spring collection if one hadn't bothered to look beyond the fit and flare embroidered dresses.There was an occasional display of asymmetrical sweaters, Cavallian typical prints in psychedelic colors, animal printed fur, trimmed on floral dresses and huge bright roses either printed or sequined adorning skirts and dresses.If one could excuse the inappropriateness of the collection for fall, then one has before oneself a neat array of girlie dresses in very subdued pleasant colors.The booties are noteworthy for their clever use of sequins, florals and embroidery.On the whole Cavalli is adorable as long as he doesn't vamp on us!!!

Truffles From The Runway

I'm totally floored by these sculptured heels from Christian Dior's Spring 2009 Ready-To-Wear collection.The heels are really really cute and kudos to John Galliano.Me a complete sucker for his shoes and with recession looming large over everyone's head, shoes like these don't do any good in controlling expenditures!!!

Keep watching this space for more coverage from the runway.


Skyscraper High Shoes Are Meant For...

Well you guessed it right!!! Taking in hand rather than walking in.Before you give in to the never ending craze for higher and higher heels(the latest buzz being 7 to 8 inches high), give yourself a serious thought as to whether a few moments of towering over the world is worth a lifetime of wobbling around with a hunchback(this is no Hunchback of Notre Dame, to make history).Be fashionably responsible !!!

Fall 2008 Ready-To-Wear - John Galliano

John Galliano's cocoon of surrealism is oft so contagious that it never does fail to touch you in the most unexpected way.He is one of the few designers who makes a movie out of a fashion show.There is the historical background, compelling sets, princesses in fantastical clothes, making you believe that you have hitched a pleasant ride into the past.This fall I'm so taken in my his wonderful choice of colors ranging from bright orange to rich burgundy.Add to that the grand headgear in the form of overblown hats and flowerpots, an array of big flowery jewellery and gold studded shoes and you have captured the essence of Galliano's ingeniousness all at one go.
