Still from "Immortals" - 2011


Ci è già capitato di narrare queste vicende, i loro eroi e le loro mitiche gesta (leggi qui). Ma quella che stiamo per celebrare ora, non è solo un capitolo di una tendenza della moda, ma la sua epopea.
Dopo che Pierre Cardin fece scendere il suo cavaliere sulla terra, le Muse vennero invocate dagli aedi: la faraonica sfilata di Galliano per Dior, Afrodite impersonata da Kylie Minogue, fino ad una divina Madonna al Super Bowl. L'Olimpo rispose all'invocazione. Dal cielo caddero le folgori di Giove, forgiate da Vulcano nelle più oscure profondità della terra. E divennero calzature, metalliche e fiammanti come armature lucenti.

We have already talked about these affairs, their heroes and legendary deeds (read here). So we are not here to celebrate a fashion trend, but its epic.
Pierre Cardin was the first one to set down his knight on the earth, then the aoidoi invoked the Muses: Galliano’s pharaonic fashion show for Dior, Aphrodite embodied in Kylie Minogue, up to a divine Madonna at Super Bowl. Mount Olympus heard their call. Jupiter’s thunderbolts fell down from the sky, as Vulcan forged them in the dark depths of the earth. And they became shoes, as much metallic and flaming as shiny body armours.

    1. We honestly like the idea behind them.
      That's definitely a different way to interpret classic menswear shoes.
