Any woman with an interest in fashion saw them—those stunning Chanel boots Anne Hathaway wore in “The Devil Wears Prada.” But they were like some mythical boot, only to be found in the mind of Patricia Field and Karl Lagerfeld.
Well, with the Fall 2009 fashion shows, this mythical creation became a reality and, to that end, a fashion phenomenon. Ohne Titel, Rodarte and Yigal Azrouel all showed black thigh-high leather boots, while Stella McCartney’s Fall 2009 show offered up a patterned version of the bondage boot.
They may be impossible to get on your foot, and it may be impossible to walk once they’re on, but if you can do it, wear them with pride. Patricia Field and I salute you.
