What to Wear Wednesday (Holt Renfrew 175)

August 29, 2012

Believe it or not, this year the designer fashion retailer Holt Renfrew is celebrating its 175th birthday!

But with designer sizes getting smaller and smaller, cake is not something the retailer will be serving up on the special occasion.

Instead they’ve got something even better and more appropriate up their tightly constructed sleeve.

Coke has come on board and offered up a special birthday celebration bottle wrapped in the famed magenta which has become the coloured trademark of the company. And of course it’s ‘diet’… how appropriate!

But that’s not all! Special designer collaborations are being created and sold in the store right now, some in very limited quantities like the numbered tuxedo blazer from Smythe.

With only 150 in the world you better be quick if you want one!

For me fashion is about wearability, some argue that it’s about conversation

With that, I present to you Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Peep Platform Trash Pump’

Now when I saw this pump I was stumped, and days later I’m still feeling the same way.

This shoe has actual ‘trash’ held in place by a clear plastic stitched over cover. Deconstructed Holt Renfrew bags, stickers, stationary and this;

Pencil shavings

The shoe retails for $1,295.00 and I am dying to know what you think!
