SANDALS FOR 2010 #1
YVES SAINT LAURENT

TEN MAY, TWO THOUSAND AND TEN

In preparation for summer, several readers have requested advice and recommendations regarding the correct sandals to wear. Sandals pose an annual dilemma for fashion houses, too, since it takes true design skill to create a sandal that is either a dignified paragon of balance, or a feast of utter outlandishness. To celebrate both ends of the spectrum, fashion director Mr. JODIE BARNES has selected various examples of very desirable shoes that fall within the “sandal” category, for this inaugural SANDAL WEEK. First comes this pair of leather YVES SAINT LAURENT sandals with a super chunky stitched sole reminiscent of deeply lined alligator, or the tread of a tyre. The sandal is fastened by way of a neat metal ball that simply pops through a hole in the strap. Facebook  Twitter


COMMENTS
  1. World Man About Town:

    I am not entirely sure about the sole but I really like these. It is difficult to find nice sandals (Hermes and Camper also made nice ones for summer 2010), and I am not a fan of gladiator sandals, so these are a very welcome suggestion.

  2. edgar:

    The psychedelic socks from 5/5 would look so cute with sandals. Maybe not paired with these YSL sandals but with Birkenstock Arizonas or Milanos…so cute! Hairy legs with sandals are nice, too.

  3. Mr Cheap Date:

    A sandal = a no go area for me really, as my legs are akin to those of an emaciated chicken or pigeon and I possess toes shaped like nick-nacks (a tasty but unattractive corn snack/crisp fashioned like a witch’s finger, to our non-UK based correspondents). Sorry to put anyone off their afternoon tea n battenburg… so enjoy, muscular limbed fantastic friends, but not pour moi unfortunately.

  4. lineage of influence:

    Sandals without doubt have their place, it just happens to be in the bin. They’re bloody awful things.

  5. Hiljá:

    Sandals love socks!

  6. adrian:

    Sandals are a question of Time and Space , common sense and good taste naturellement !

  7. bigtony:

    Where can I buy this sandal?

  8. purchase bible online:

    I wrote a comparable report about this subject but you did a greater career :)

AUTUMN & WINTER 2014

And so, the curtain rises on a new issue of FANTASTIC MAN – the 20th edition, for Autumn & Winter 2014. Indeed, the mysterious mustachioed figure on its cover is double Oscar-winning Mr. CHRISTOPH WALTZ, an acting Austrian who, in defiance of Hollywood convention, has risen to international prominence in his sixth decade. In a vastly entertaining interview, the star of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, DJANGO UNCHAINED, CARNAGE and now BIG EYES discusses the advantages and pitfalls of being a late bloomer. Elsewhere in this well-rounded issue, the chronicler of international fashion commerce Mr. IMRAN AMED is profiled, as is the exceptional Canadian author and artist Mr. DOUGLAS COUPLAND, plus the phenomenon of French-language cinema Mr. XAVIER DOLAN. The latter showcases his precocious versatility in an array of ravishing outfits. Speaking of matters fashionable, a definitive guide to the new season’s luscious WINTER COATS is proudly presented, and revered British critic Mr. NICHOLAS DE JONGH prescribes unusual getups to be worn for an opening night at the THEATRE. Those yearning for a cherished but DISCONTINUED PERFUME will hopefully find solace in a nostalgic reportage entitled ‘EXTINCT’. There’s plenty more besides, of course. Order now
