Rihanna fails to rock Gucci’s fringed foho boots

Anyone who reads Fashionising.com’s fashion forums will know that I’ve been trying to get my hands on a pair of fringed boots from Gucci’s Autumn (Fall)/Winter 2008 collection. Why? Because they’re darn hot, of course. To my great disappointment, Rihanna somehow missed that fact when she wore them to Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2009 runway show at Milan Fashion Week.

Rihanna wearing Gucci fringed bohemian boots

One of the big 2008/2009 shoe trends, fringed boots should be worn with a feeling of bohemian luxury.

Rihanna’s bare-legged, minidressed, streaky-haired interpretation somehow falls far short of the amazing potential of the boots.

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 Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
