Here’s my “Freaky Friday” fashion pick of the week. Scissor handle shoes by designer Peter Popps.
Not sure where I’d wear these? Parent teacher meeting? Blind date? The grocery store? Meh!
I think they’d be good costumes for a movie about the cultivation of cut-throat fashion designers who live in an all white city underneath New York’s 5th Avenue. The evil cult leader stomps around in these ginormous scissor-like shoes slamming patterns and sketches in front of the members and demanding them to produce stylish designs. Some escape the cult through a secret glass elevator that leads to Central Park, but others are brainwashed into conforming and eventually earn scissor shoes of their own. Of course there’s some weird torture involved (like being forced to sleep in cheap, scratchy fabrics), a love triangle, and lots of robots with attitudes.
OK- it could use some developing, but it’s a start. And I’m still half asleep (I stayed up way too late last night watching Netflix), so that’s my excuse. I’m tired! Ha!
