I have just one word for the Crocs that Christopher Kane sent down his runway today: NOPE.
I can handle the Birkenstocks as a fashion thing. Even Tevas, fine, I can deal with. But Crocs? Nope. Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope. Sorry, just nope.
Rendered in alluring colors like shit brown, Kane’s fashion Crocs come accented with hideous jewels. And while the chain-link frocks and playful prints, which were based on those from seasons past, were all instantly covetable, just as Marc Jacobs’ dreadful dreadlocks overshadowed an otherwise solid collection, Kane’s hideous footwear is what’s making headlines. Not all press is good press, guys.
Making basic, ugly staples into fashion must-haves has long been a thing, but some items are best left for the bargain bin at Walmart. Sorry Kane, we’re not buying it.
