Uggs on the runway? Almost.
To a packed house today for New York Fashion Week at Harlem’s Hamilton Theater, Alexander Wang sent out a fall 2017 lineup of plush black velvet boots that resembled the famous polarizing sheepskin boots. In an attempt to personalize and (and Wang-ize) the winter staple, they were rimmed in a row of stud embellishment.
Other styles in the strictly noir and gray collection also featured this detail, from pointed boots to low-heeled pumps. If they were meant to be irreverent and edgy, that didn’t quite translate because we couldn’t see them given Wang’s rammed, standing-room-only setup.
