The Best Shoes of 2009 – YSL

I had trouble to give a title to this article. I mean it could have been multiple suiting things like, “Claudia Schiffer for YSL”, or “My Heart Stops, When Stefano Pilati Starts” or “The Hollywood Sign Abstracted”, but I couldn’t make anything more important that this shoe. No matter what else is released this year nothing will come close to this graphic sculptural peep toe boot, made of leather and wire. It is just pure untouchable genius! It is no wonder they have the whole SS09 YSL campaign was based on it, and the photos of Schiffer shot by Inez & Vinoodh are nothing short of amazing. They captured that Hollywood Glamour with the abstracted letters of the Hollywood sign just behind Schiffer.
