The accessories in Paris were in a realm of their own. From McQueen's towering, curved platforms to John Galliano's erotically inspired heels, there was definitely a foot fetish this season. The bondage theme we saw happening in New York continued at Givenchy and Marant, with straps and buckles galore. Lanvin opted for a safari moment, while Louis Vuitton took on the clog. See all these and more in the best accessories from Paris.
Alexander McQueen completed his futuristic vision with towering platforms and twisted, curving stilettos. One word: wow.
Coiled ropes of shark teeth adorned wrists at Balenciaga in a sharp turn from last season's rhinestone cuffs.
Army-green canvas and hardware toughen up Balmain's sexy stiletto ankle boots.
Thick wooden platforms and sturdy ankle straps at Celine added some heft to an otherwise feminine collection.
Straw was the big material at Chanel — it literally lined the runway. Here, it's woven through bags for a basket effect.
Dries Van Noten
A classic two-tone pump gets the Dries touch with a bright-green heel and a sling-back. Multiple strands of pearls piled on top of each other to push the ladylike classic to a new level. An oversize jewel pendant is the finishing touch.
Givenchy continues the bondage theme set by the accessories in New York. Multiple straps wrap around the ankle to add a delicately dangerous feel.
The dominatrix goes ecochic at Isabel Marant, with a wooden heel and more rugged leather straps.
Part ladylike demure, part naughty grown-up fun, these shoes by John Galliano walk the fine line between campy and chic. These take foot fetish to a whole new level.
Let's go on a safari, by way of Lanvin. Animal necklaces and neutral-toned, retro-styled pumps get elevated with flashes of gold.
The classic clog gets a high-fashion makeover at Louis Vuitton.
The ever-present peep-toe bootie becomes girlie and soft at Nina Ricci. Eyelets in lavender leather with an elastic band make these pretty and wearable.
