The Historic Barefoot Finale at Brian Reyes

Brian Reyes collaborated with Manolo Blahnik on shoes for his show today, but the models could barely walk in them. Many took their shoes off mid-walk. It was so bad, in fact, that the finale was done barefoot. We like this idea. For spring 2010 someone should throw sand on the runway as part of some sort of beach theme (ahem, Thom Browne).
