This morning Elizabeth‘s post on Balenciaga shoes stopped me in my tracks. I jumped at the chance to message pictures to my Balenciaga confidante, Kate. Though we both are apt to wax poetic on Nicolas Ghesquiere, nothing for her has been able to top SS08’s gladiator heels. Until now. Below is her reaction, because I couldn’t put it better myself.
“i was having a normal morning. i’d responded to a few emails, made coffee when THIS SHOE APPEARED IN MY FACEBOOK INBOX. i stumbled to the kitchen for a paper bag because i suddenly found MYSELF UNABLE TO BREATHE. steam was accelerating out of all facial orifices and i was beginning to smell the sizzle of fried brain : KANDINSKY COLOURS. VAN DER ROHE LINES. LATE 70S WEIGHT AND SHAPE. everything has changed, and the whole world has become bright, shiny, and new. i am a baby again. thank you, Tanya Brown. thank you, nicolas ghesquiere. i am so happy i could die.”
