When I walked home a week ago in East Village I spotted a girl wearing Birkenstock in white and they were honestly kind of cool. So I might go with a white pair, especially since I have a pair of Marni sandals that are almost the same in black and the Céline slip-ons. I would probably wear them as Ms Moss on the pic above, otherwise you get a bit too much of the hospital scene going on at your feet.
You haven’t missed the CR Fashion book’s tumblr right? I love the CR site and pretty much visit it every day since Roitfeld and her team cover everything from editorial fashion to the latest Daft Punk album and the Cannes Film Festival. In her editorial cover Carine puts a twist on wardrobe essentials. With model Xiao Wen, Roitfeld shows one of the most classical pieces of all time, a Chanel bag, in seven different ways. I love the fact that no matter what style you have, you can wear this timeless piece to it – from punk to hippie. The editorial is photographed by Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert, and styled by Carine herself.
