Check out the curves on those babies!

I am very familiar with these ankle boots; I've had them in my references folder ever since they popped up in the lookbook, and while I didn't dream of being able to get them, I was looking for something similar (with no success). When I tried them in person our chemistry was too good to pass; the fit is out of this world.

I'm very impressed with Hedi Slimane's work- he has brought the brand into the youth and made it cool and current again. People are wearing this kind of stuff in the street. It is luxurious, yet looks practical and accessible. There's none of the stuffiness that we see so often in these big classic houses (LV, Dior, Chanel, YSL, Gucci...) of clean lines and shiny buckles, and designs that, frankly, just look a bit dated. No. This is all very modern and cool.

More Saint Laurent boots...
