The bling of designer duo Viktor & Rolf always has a soul. My heeled silver leather sandals, lined with feathers, remind me of a self-portrait of Japanese artist Kimiko Toshida as Sitting Bull, the Sioux leader. I’ve always dreamt more of stealing Pocahontas’ outfits than of wearing Cinderella’s dress and glass slippers… I don’t like precious fragile things, especially not on my feet! I prefer wedges that have character, whimsical ankle straps that refuse to be worn with tights and this leather that requires them. So, without holding back I wear these feathers on my feet summer and winter to stay 100% light.
