Crime of Fashion: Miu Miu’s Leather and Suede Boots With Dragonfly Ornaments

Miumiuboots It always hurts the most when the designers you love present you with something like THIS.

Oh, Miu Miu, how could you do it to us? How well we’ve loved your shoes until now! How we’ve coveted every embellishment and smiled over every last inch of them. And then … this.

What happened, here, Miu Miu? Wear these are you’re going to look like you fell asleep in the forest, Babes in the Wood style, and some creepers took root nearby and grew up your leg. And not only that: THERE ARE INSECTS ON THEM. INSECTS. And yeah, sure, they’re dragonflies, and we know you’re all about dragonflies, Miu Miu, but seriously: INSECTS CRAWLING UP YOUR LEGS, dammit! What were you thinking?

These are Spring/Summer 08, and there’s a big ol’ question mark over whether they’ll actually go into production or not. I don’t know about you, but I reckon I’m going to be voting "not"…

    I’m usually in agreement with your “fashion crime” posts, but if I had the necessary panache (and appropriate income level) I would wear those boots!

    i like these. although, i’m not quite sure how they’d look ON. i don’t like the idea of the skin showing through.

    I am going to have to agree wholeheardedly with you, those boots are inexcusable. There cannot be any justification for letting something like that out on the market

    Sweet mother of hayzoos these are abominable! As I was scrolling I thought it was some sort of complex manga cartoon and it took me ages to realise it was actually an item of clothing.

    if the non material parts were covered with a black leather then maybe they could be exepted??

    I bought the dragonfly sandals, which are a lot less extravagant than these boots but the same concept, I had so many comments on them, specially when I wore them in Vegas, I love the sandals.. I love Miu Miu.
