Alexander Wang Fall 2010 Womenswear Footwear...
1995 Clueless dropped and I was in Private School. I remember the girls was wearing short plaid uniform short skirts and these inexpensive black chucky heeled shoe with a silver zippers/lace up/buckles/or loafer. And in the magazines also videos all the POP/R&B lady singers were wearing this look with high watered pant, which was a little high waisted with these designer high (chucky) heeled boots (where you saw the whole boot almost). DKNY, CHANEL, and GUCCI were behind some of the styles if I can remember right. Being that CLUELESS had a big IMPACT the "mary jane" was huge too and knee high socks.
Alexander Wang was in junior high...so he took himself sort of back there when designing his FALL 2010 Alexander Wang womenswear footwear collection. I totally remember my Junior High Teacher Ms. Freckle Face Liberman with curly hair (aww man Ms. Liberman twenty something back then, round cute face, freckles, brunette curly hair, tall, fashionable, and so nice) wearing all the styles of shoes that favors this current Alexander Wang look. Her colleague Ms. Broadman my math teacher too adopted the style (also brunette, glasses, fashionable also, manicured nails,patient, and favorite word "ENOUGH" when being stern with students). So to see the look be revamped is awesome. This is what makes Alexander Wang dope he understands to make the classics, timeless and effortless.
C'mon look at your "TOM FORD" book with Amber Valletta inspired by Carine Roitfeld GUCCI Ads, look at D'Angelo "Lady" video, Madonna, Debie Mazar, Shirley Manson, Total, Foxy, Lil' Kim, Mary, Brandy, and Monica videos also editorials back then.
