I’m a forward thinking kinda gal. I well and truly anticipate my landing on the moon during my life time. It will happen and when it does, I’d very much like to wear Liam Fahy’s design that won him the Fashion Fringe Shoe competition, bagging him a paid internship with Rupert Sanderson. The white shiny plastic/patent and the way it is cut up into pieces and overlaps and also the non-clompy wedge makes it the ideal shoe to take my first moon steps. Yes, I am eliminating any rules of physics in this space-shoe equation. Me thinks my chances of walking in the shoes as opposed to the moon are slightly bigger so I’ll also happily take pairing the shoes with a pair of skinny ruched black satin trousers, a white boiled wool big shouldered cape top and some Martin Margiela visor sunglasses as a sensible alternative.
