Here are some of the images from the Sneaking into Fashion exhibition curated by Tory Turk on behalf of Javari.co.uk. The pop-up exhibition looked at how the trainer has become part of our culture and featured some rare designs. I loaned a pair of my trainers to the exhibition, can you guess which pair is mine? The Vivienne Westwood ‘Tracey trainers’. The exhibition was staged in at Convent Garden, the cases set amongst the walk ways – taking the gallery outside of the museum. It was a great way to get people who wouldn’t usually visit such an exhibition interacting and learning.┬á Many famous pairs were featured including shoe designs from Nike, Adidas, Isabel Marant and Vivienne Westwood. You can take virtual tour of the highlights and find out more info on the shoes at Javari.
Y3 shoes from TK Maxx
You know when you are just out browsing, just having a look, killing some time and all of a sudden you decide to buy something totally not your usual style just for the hell of it? Well that! I saw these super cool Y3 shoes, that’s the label by Adidas and Yoji Yamamoto and I had visions of myself all spots-luxe a bit Alexander Wang street sports cool! Obviously I get them home and realise I have absolutely nothing to go with these shoes – or are they trainers? But hey I do like a challenge, I’m thinking maybe the Wang blazer, slouchy t-shirt, tailored trouser possibly even a baseball cap…? I also have to mention how comfy they are, seriously the are actually like trainers, so soft and padded, why more heel’s don’t come with that I’ve no idea. They are almost bouncy!
What do you think, are they keepers?
