Well Aren’t These Just #thesh*t
Because who wouldn’t want embroidered poop emblazoned across their beautiful Italian loafers?!
Fashion industry favourite – Edie Parker, has teamed up with legendary shoemaker – Del Toro, to design exclusively for online boutique Moda Operandi, the emoji loafer & purse collection, aptly named “M’oticons”.
I’ve been pondering the M’oticons range since their launch and quite honestly, my brain still doesn’t quite know how to process any of it! Don’t get me wrong, I love communicating in emoji as much as the next person, online! And it does combine two of my favourite things, symbols and hashtags, again, online! (and not in overkill) But on my shoes? Well, I’m just not sure I’m feelin it.
OK, let’s start with the poop shoe, or more accurately #theshit – yes, they named this slick slipper #theshit. Now, enter the price tag, circa US$340. So, just to clarify… two fashion industry faves have collaborated to create a line of fabulous Italian loafers, of which they’ve embroidered with various emojis, one of which is called #theshit. It doesn’t end there – you can also treat yourself to #Dabomb loafer (with a bomb and fire on each shoe), #QueenBee (featuring the queen and bee emojis), #DancingQueen, #HighMaintenance (hmmm maybe I should consider that pair) and several other partnered emoticons. But wait, there’s more, you can also bag yourself (pun intended) a matching clutch for a cool $1,595. Yeah, I think I’ll probably just stick to the emojis on my iPhone and let this fad pass me by. I mean sure, maybe if they were under $50 so that I didn’t feel bad when I binned them, once they reached their expiry date.
As much as I’m clearly not the biggest fan of the overpriced M’oticon shoe range, they’re certainly still worth a mention, if not just for the pure amusement of it all.
Check out some of the emoji pairings on offer and make up your own mind on the M’oticon range…
So, what do you think? Keen to step out in the emoji-loafer? Or have they gone a step too far?
