But maybe it’s a feet issue? I always wrestle with summer stuff because I CANNOT wear any kind of shoes without socks, at least not without bleeding all over the shoes. So how then do I wear skirts? How do I wear cropped pants? Actually, I usually don’t, but I could certainly see a “make everything black and simple so that it blends and may not catch the eye” approach. In fact, merely the thought of not wearing long pants all summer almost reconciles me to the idea.
Fabulous! I love Carla, I love her style…I love this look. She’s wearing MBT sandals a.k.a. Maasai Barefoot Technology. They simulate the act of walking on uneven terrain barefoot…like the Maasai. It’s a fantastic way to keep her legs looking great. When you are Carla Sozzani…you make the rules and break them….she can wear a black potato sack and look great.
O Lurker, you have hit it off exactly! I feel strongly that if we are to spend a lot of time judging people’s outfits, it is immoral not to make allowances for health, age, weather conditions and (to a degree) comfort. Certain style situations leave one no choice but to work a suboptimal look as best one can or to be fiendishly uncomfortable/exacerbate a medical condition. I myself would probably wear some kind of black closed-back clog with black socks and a skirt, on the theory that it would look a bit more arty, but if I were doing a lot of walking or my feet were bugging me, I think oddball/geek chic sandals and socks would be okay. Feet are important! How are we to fit them into tiny pointy shoes for glamourous occasions if we don’t let them recuperate in flat wide shoes sometimes?
the black socks /sandals works very well …. this blog is about style not sensitivity, and that is VERY stylish …. comfort should always trump style ….. we don’t all have to be skinny and attractive , ugly and slothenly is attractive also
The Shoes: Everything else looks so amazing I can’t help wondering if she knows something that I don’t. After all; she is “Carla” as we have all pointed out. Is it possible for he to be wrong? Oh dear! Socks inside of sandals. Oh my!
All right, I understand that it’s hyperbole, but it seems ridiculous to react so strongly to someone’s footwear. Fashion rules are arbitrary, and they change constantly. I admire anyone who will just wear what they want to wear and what is comfortable. This is one reason why I love this site – it’s inspiring to see glimpses of personal style, rather than fashion.
who the hell is this woman that people spend their time writing about her? alright she made a super expensive posh bar in milan… so what? good for her. People get back to reality…. there’s a lot more to life than this…
I would do a little more research before ripping someone, especially someone that so many people seem to respect – didn’t that give you a hint?
She owns not a posh bar but what is widely considered of of the most important fashion store in the world 10 Corso Como. yes is has a bar and hotel but that is just window dressing for her store an her impeccable ability to make a store that is constantly new and exciting to a crowd that gets bored very fast.
if she wasn’t Carla, this probably wouldn’t seem right at all, it would certainly look terrible. It’s Carla that’s worth it, she always leave people thinking on her and her style. She’s got her own independent style, I truly admire that. oh, and I love her Kris Ruhs necklace, he makes true sculptures for jewelry, and they look great on her!
