Is the advent of the sportswear shoe that propels in turn on the front of the stage? The one that for many years was one of the flagship models of the brand Vans, has a second youth for several seasons.
Essential piece of a walk-in wardrobe for every self-respecting skateboarder, worn by punk-rockers too, its simplicity, its comfort, and its lack of laces, had already seduced a small audience. Confined to her world, it took a few designers to get involved in making her one of the most desirable pairs in the fall of 2013-2014.
Reinterpreted by Kenzo in capsule collections in collaboration with Vans, the slip-on forsakes its traditional tiles for more bold prints in the colors of the Japanese label. Widely acclaimed, these models pave the way for a new, more chic, cooler slip-on. Phoebe Philo seizes it and brings it up to date for the Céline collections in foal or metallic hair version.
The slip-on is gaining ground and is also found in Jimmy Choo, Givenchy, Sandro. Studded, leopard, "Barbès tiles" or python, whether "inspired" by the original or made with Vans, it is displayed as well during the parades, as in the lookbooks, such as that of Studio Nicholson who puts it in the spotlight on multiple silhouettes.
Simple to combine, they are as good with a skirt, a set of pants / jacket, or jeans and leather jacket. To be adopted without delay.
