If you don’t speak Afrikaans, then the translation for the title of this post is basically: As high as hell, or, hellishly high.
That’s the best way I can think of to describe these positively Amazonian beauties by Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony. The collection builds on the success of Chloe’s last collaboration with OC, and the footwear is equally as iconic and fetishy. Oh so Chloe.
I love that attention is given to creating a really strong silhouette, rather than to embellishment or frippery – stitching, bows, elaborate zips or buckles. I saw lots of similar teeter-worthy specimens whilst in London, but I must admit, I don’t think I’d handle this height (nor the fact that I’d be towering over 6ft men in clubs and crowds).
Well, maybe if I was watching Interpol live. And wouldn’t they just be perfect for an Interpol concert? A similarly dark, sleek and coolly gothic affair.
