I have been meaning to write about this since forever. Now is the perfect time, so I’m glad I held my tongue up until here.
The word is the new Mr Givenchy Fragrance has some worn out shoes he walks Paris in. The truth is, Mr Justin Timberlake is just a follower. We all remember Johnny Depp’s Red Carpet appearances wearing these impossibly worn shoes every single event. So the trend is set then?
There is a point in everyone’s life when clothes and shoes are least important, I’ve felt it too. But I’m just a fashion outsider, a bystander judging style from my comfy seat. The main players, however, I think they hold a responsibility towards themselves as well as towards onlookers.
‘With great power comes great responsibility’ and taking care of one’s appearance is one of them. Discerning the good style in a sea of trends changing every 3 months can wear off even the most innocent fashion soul out there! Let’s say that 2008 will be the year of distressed footwear and hope for better?
Although, honestly, Johnny looks like he kept a few items from the Sweeny Todd wardrobe! (the first image was taken on the Sweeny Todd premiere Red Carpet) JT might need a teleportation button, engageable asap towards a serene future when his boys band-reminiscent wardrobe will be curated by Tom Ford into an adult’s wardrobe!
