The mood: Wild, Wild West-meets-Hitchcock Heroine, who used to dance at Joffrey Ballet School, naturally.
The Soundtrack: a remix of Dolly Parton standards such as “Save The Last Dance.”
The shoes: Reflecting her woman’s eclectic tastes and proclivities, Katrantzou took last fall’s platform Mary Janes (produced by Gianvito Rossi) and gave them a rockabilly update in cowgirl and animal prints. Her most inventive proposition, however, was color-saturated satin ballerina flats with ribbon lacing, paired with rodeo queen spats. They were taken from the shaft of traditional western boots for slippers with serious kick.
The verdict: While on paper (or screen, if you will) such a subculture clash would seem too bizarre to be attractive, Katrantzou pulled it off as only she can, managing to raise the bar. And the barre.
