These aint no kitten heels

Update: when I first penned the post below, I wasn’t sure who the creative brain was behind this quirky pair of feline footwear. Thanks to comments left by knowledgable fashionisers, I can now tell you they’re Charlotte Olympia’s ‘Smoking Cat’ wedges.

Cute, or just plain gimmicky?

Spotted on the streets of Paris these shoes may not be kitten heels (au contraire, they seem to have a rather high platform) but they certainly are kittens for your feet. Another mystery shoe, I’m not sure who designed them (if you do know, we’d love you to comment below) but the black velvet and embroidered cat faces sure make them stand out. As for my lead-in question, I think that comes down to styling: a pair of fishnet stockings and cuffed black pants gives them an air of classic Parisian glamour.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
