Flirt with the modern Talaria

4 Jul

My obsession for shoes with wings does not stop. Ever since my fondness towards Melissa + Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania collection, I’ve been actively looking for a pair in faux marble rosa or preta (though I was told by leen that it looked a bit ‘la la’ :/) This platform shoe had its debut at Westwood’s Spring 2010 Red Label Collection in London. It’s not a new product so most of the places are out and some online stores offer stock request but only available in August >.<

The shoe looks like a funkier version of a Talaria, the winged sandals that was worn by Hermes or Mercury, god of messenger.

Matt Bernson has a Talaria as well and it’s design closely replicates the traditional Talaria.

Now, what about a sporty looking Talaria?

Introducing…

ADIDAS ORIGINALS x JEREMY SCOTT LEATHER WINGS 2.0

JS 2.0 collection line (with matching jacket)

Adidas x JS leather wings 2.0

This is from the Fall/Winter 2010 line and will be launched in August (time to save some $$)

Jeremy Scott has a fascination with putting wings in his collection. He did it in Fall/Winter 2009, the difference was that the wings are removable metallic leather flaps.
