Rad Hourani - Fall 09

Rad Hourani - Fall 09

“What looks minimalist is actually very complex, very detailed. I take the idea of purity, but I love to embellish it. I liked to build refined layers and regard clothing like sculpture. What influences that? It’s usually architecture. It can be a line, a texture, a shape.” says Rad Hourani. Read more on www.whats-wrong-with-the-zoo.com

The reason for woman to love Jeffrey Campbell is not only that he´s a shoe designer, it´s also, because he manages to sell his shoes always in an affordable price range . The Asti model is the lates coup of the American and if you love or hate, you must admit, that Jeffrey Campbell´s answer to the famous Acne Estrada models becomes a real competitor by it´s price. While Acne is selling it´s models for 250 - 270 €, the Asti Shoe is sold for 118 $. Quality seems fine and if you were troubled by Acne´s prices so far, you don´t have to abstain from your gladiator wedge anymore. Read more on www.whats-wrong-with-the-zoo.com

While my boyfriend´s praying that my love for „chunk shoes” will die down, i have to admit, that there hasn´t been a more joyful revival than the comeback of the platforms. And how could i turn my back to the super heels when summer promises to bring even more platform fun? Thankfully I am not alone with my love for the fake body height shoes :-) Already in the middle age, …woman backed up their shoes with wooden wedges, called trippen, to present their status. As higher a woman was walking, as honorable and approved was her social rank. During the 15th and 16th century, in Italy and France, the trippen developed into a special form of super-plateau: The chopine, which was a cork and wood “tower” worn only by woman, mostly by courtesans and made them unable to walk without help. Until the 20th century, the heel played an important role in European women’s and men´s fashion, but the platform did the sleeping beauty till the 30s when pumps came up what lead to a short height of wedges and platform heels till Second World War started. The 70s disco-era finally brought back the platform heel, and it came in its most eccentric versions, with glitter and glimmer, colors and lots of unisex models. The 80s sexualized the shoe-form to the core and established it in the fetish corner where platform is still a must-have. And unfortunately it became a little bit awkward in the 90s -I sincerely feel sorry for my loved platform shoe- but it simply became a no-go when appearing in form of super-high Buffalo Sneakers worn by dull Techno followers and suburb-twerps. First in 2006, the platform heel celebrated a successful and sophisticated comeback and commercial success when coming back in super female, business-fitting versions of pumps, heels, sandals and wedges. I hope, it´ll take some more years till this trend is over. I enjoy, enjoy, enjoy …Read more on www.whats-wrong-with-the-zoo.com

Most of the time, it´s just an expression for the rich-born with bad taste. Detox today, Botox tomorrow, party as business and desperate trials to stay young, thin and beautiful often make me miss the substance and let “It-Girl” sound more like defamation than a compliment. That Raquel Allegra hit the US-headlines as “It girl in the fall of ‘08″ thankfully hasn´t anything to do with a rich daddy or a secretly launched amateur-porn video, surprisingly, she became an It-Girl because of talent.
