Hex

Comme des Garcons' Spring 09 range was dark, stiff, and totally mathematical with garments made of hexagonal shapes patchworked out of vinyl leather. I played soccer for 6 years when I was a teenager- never did I think I'd be swooning over non-athletic apparel that was inspired by the sport years later. Last week the hex oxfords from the collection popped up on ebay and now they will be mine! The shoes are made with loosely spun white felted wool encased in a clear plastic shell- so FUTURE. I can't wait to have these on my feet.
