It’s been pouring over the weekend and with that, out came all the rain boots on the streets of the bustling city of Hong Kong. Water puddles were everywhere and people bumping into each other from brolly to brolly. Not to my surprise, the rainy weather has found another new meaning and creativity in the fashion world. It’s the latest invention of the transparent ankle boots if you haven’t already heard about it.
You may have seen this fashion trend being blogged about lately and I am not surprised at all, as it’s definitely a blog worthy post!!! It’s sorta a love and hate relationship, or like Marmite, you either like it or hate it. I actually am not feeling it at all but i do admire the creativity put into it. They are called transparent ankle boots but they sure can pass as rain boots for me too, lol.
Swedish label Cheap Monday went daring and had their SS 2011 collection filled with models walking up the runway in the transparent ankle boots. These long transparent ankle boots just look plain silly over the jeans and I don’t know what to make over the shorter boot version. At the same time, their clothes are quite nice with the montoned colors effect but the model’s faces look pretty freaky, pissed off, and oily to me (or maybe its intended to be like that?)!!! =P
Love it or hate it? What’s your say ladies?
