Part highway woman, part “Wonder Woman,” Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière’s spring boot shown at Paris Fashion Week was wholly desirable.
With its flared vamp from front to rear (where the logo was also much in evidence) and exaggerated dip at the sides, there was a whiff of the Seventies at play — underscored by the alligator leather and rainbow python treatments in vibrant cobalt and superhero gold.
The boot came in mid-calf and ankle-length heights, the latter styled with loosely tucked pants for a slouchy Left Bank Paris vibe that was all easy elegance and louche attitude.
And while the boot was undoubtedly the hero of the hour, there was also a heeled pump with ballet-bondage black lacing. Sure, it bucked the trend for flats, but when has Vuitton ever played by the rules?
