Today in downtown Los Angeles, FN was on location with Kendall and Kylie Jenner for an exclusive first look at their latest shoe collection.
The offering, for the sisters’ contemporary Kendall + Kylie collection, will launch for spring ’16. While the full story is coming out in the next issue of Footwear News, we can reveal that this was the first time the sisters had seen the footwear, swimwear and clothing all together.
The duo eagerly placed orders for friends such as Taylor Swift, Hailey Baldwin and Gigi Hadid. The styles are not quite ready yet, so today Kendall was wearing a pair of gold Manolo Blahnik BB pumps. “They are just so well made and comfortable,” she told us, plunking one foot on the table to give us a better look as her sister rubbed her foot after a long day of shooting.
Though Kylie’s feet were obscured by flared trousers, she also knows a thing or two about statement shoes. She had on a pair of lace-up heels by Gianvito Rossi. “He’s a designer whose shoes I admire,” said the high-heel devotée. “The only flats I own are a few sneakers.”
After snapping Polaroids of their favorite pieces from the collection, the girls made a dash for it out a back entrance of the showroom, where paparazzi had already gathered to capture their every well-shod step.
