The Man Repeller’s Shopbop Wish List

Another Shopbop wish list from their “Fashion Insider” series has popped up, and this time it’s with Leandra Medine, the mastermind behind the desexifying fashion revolution, The Man Repeller. Coining terms like “Yeshiva Chic” and “Birth Control Glasses,” we really had no choice but to become absolutely addicted to the 21-year-old’s hilarious take on the latest trends. For those of us wanting to expand our anti-guy-arousing wardrobe, check out her wish list here, which includes gems like the See by Chloe Quilted Cape, the Jenni Kayne Leather T-Shirt, and the LNA Open Elbow Long Dress.

This Charlotte Ronson Pleated Ruffle Dress she also picked is questionably pretty, but it’s nothing a little awkward layering can’t fix.

New Designer Footwear Floods the Market

imageExpect a flood of new footwear options come spring. “Today’s news in WWD was all about shoes,” Fashionista notes. See by Chloe is stepping into shoe design, a new development sure to launch fashion lovers into a frenzy given the hysteria that typically revolves around the line’s namesake, Chloe — a luxury brand synonymous with covetable footwear. Meanwhile, labels Proenza Schouler and Hussein Chayalan will likewise introduce original footwear into the mix in just a few months.

Come February, Jeremy Scott will debut “a wacky sneaker mini-line” he designed in collaboration with Adidas. Also making waves in the footwear collaboration department are Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid’s “architectural (of course), asymmetric, injection-moulded plastic footwear” for Brazilian shoe mavens Melissa. Looking for a pair of kicks equally as innovative, but more in the vein of sea-foam green and muted lavender? Try Ohne Titel’s stilettos for Cesare Paciotti, which were expertly strutted by an especially diverse group of models at the German label’s SS09 show just a few weeks ago.
