An Achilles heel.
We all have them.
Safe to say for Queen Michelle and I, it's sunglasses. If I'm honest I would need to also have to include coats but after today, you like me, could very well have a new weakness in the form of the creations of Achilles Ion Gabriel
The Finnish-born shoemaker Achilles Ion Gabriel launched his eponymous brand in 2012, a shoe-maker rather than a shoe designer; focused artisanal qualities and luxury fabrics are inherent to his work. The soles and hardware are crafted entirely by hand and are finished with a strong attention to detail, women's shoes crafted from an alternative and detailed aesthetic.
I can't say how much I love these. They make me think of my huge collection of YMC Joey Ramone sneakers from many moons ago.
They are pretty spendy at around £200 a pair but I am seriously seriously tempted...
You can also take a wee look atAchilles Ion Gabriel Spring-Summer 2016 styles at LN-CC.COM & in store, starting mid-end of February.
I could do without some of the more Herman Munster style boots but I'm struggling to choose my favourite pair of sneakers...
