You can say goodbye to your ballet flats this spring as it seems like the shoe of the season is that old school classic, the skater kid Van slip on sneaker. French fashion house Celine have produced a much coveted all black one this season and we’ve been wearing a pair of gold mock croc ones from Kurt Geiger that we picked up at the new Bleeker Street store.
Leave it to Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the clever design duo behind Kenzo to nail the perfect pair. Continuing Kenzo’s ongoing collaboration with Vans, they have just released a fabulous selection of tiger and leopard print slip ons, inspired by the designers’ recent travels to Thailand. A great take on this season’s tiger trend, we think the Kenzo Vans are the perfect touch of tiger for summer.Kenzo Vans. Opening Ceremony.35 Howard Street. New York. 10013.
