    What’s so interesting about the hands (to me), is that from afar, you don’t notice them. You just see a pretty dress or jacket with lovely draping, but when you get up close to it – pow! What a conversation piece πŸ™‚

    Love the thigh high trendβ€” liked the ones Prada and Rodarte did this Fall, too. With the frozen tundra that is NYC right now, covering my entire leg in leather seems like a brilliant idea. I’d choose higher boots over a longer coat any day! Can’t wait to see more photos, Judy!
    Maya, Prada did a similar boot for Fall 09 with a lug heel that’s not high. : )

    The hands remind me of Korean horror movies, except in said movies some sort of demented child being would have emerged….

    AMAZING boots! Can’t wait to see you style ’em! Love the hands on the Chalayan white pieces too! I hadn’t seen the close-ups until today, can’t believe I didn’t notice them before!

    I tried the translator as it always pops up when I open your blog. Let me tell you, at least the Finnish translation was hilarious! But anyways, the boots are amazing!

    hmmm…despite being a total boot fetish hag, I can”t like the boots. The weird arch at the top of the foot really throws me off. I love the Ann D weird ass talon heal shape…Im ok with clunky platform toes- and many other non-sexy boot and shoe shapes…but this detail really throws me off. I want to love this boot because the leather is so fucking WONDERFUL but….ack. the delicateness of the heal…combined with the weird ass shape of the foot? I dont know.
    I wish people would explain to me why this appeals to them…because as a boot lover, I am upset with myself.

    They remind me of a scene from Rose-Red (based on the stephen king novel.)

    The hands frighten me a little!

  • anne
    January 14, 2010 at 7:35 am

    ALI–since you asked, I like that these boots look exaggerated like a comic book character’s boots–the flared top, the tight calf, the heel that almost looks like a wine glass stem. so many shoes are in good taste and boring to me–most loubs and manolos for example. these are memorable. I like a little “bad taste” in shoes like some of the crazy mmm or ann d stuff. for ex I like the chunky ann 3 triple-lace ankle boot with the spike heel–the “wrong” proportion is what makes it good for me. so–that’s why these appeal to me!

    Those dresses with the hands are “hands down” amazing….pun intentened. Love, love, love them. they are so unexpexcted.

  • Florie
    January 14, 2010 at 3:49 pm

    hands are amasing . i found out that they are ceramics!
    “Surrealism came into play upon noticing ceramic fists enclosed around sections of silk, Grecian dresses which draped gently as the models promenaded hautily down the runway. This is perhaps more akin to the sculptural dynamics we are used to seeing from a Hussein Chalayan collection. So too were the voluminous, sharply-pleated, metallic, midnight-blue neck pieces, which meandered down onto the chest or hip of a bandeau top or dress. These sinuous forms reflected the lights above the catwalk, resembling softly rippling water, illuminated by moonlight.”

    Such a smart idea to attach garters to loose thigh high boots. I have a pair of OTK boots and they’re forever sliding down and it feels unsecure.
    Love Chalayan and those boots are amazing on you!

    Dear Judy,
    I’m a long time reader, 1st time poster. I like boots but I live in Australia-it is boiling hot here at the the moment, so boots are out. I hope you visit here soon-you have a large fan base, and we’d love to see what you’d wear in the heat and humidity (these conditions can wreak havoc with Glamour-trust me. I know). Where would you wear these boots? Are they Special Event or more Casual? FF xxxx

    the hands are icky. the boots would be useful in a flood if you put gaffa tape across the top to keep the sewagey water out. It rains a lot here.

    The scarf looks great. I have been making okay progress on my first scarf (crochet). When I work on it I get a lot done, but then I forget to work on it for days. I’d better get cracking or it will be summer and too warm to wear it! And that’s a great movie list, I’ve seen most of them, but it’s time to watch them again.
