If there’s one thing Emmanuelle Alt loves to put in her Vogue Paris, especially during the summer issues, is a looooot of skin! Bare skin. Highly tanned and muscled up. This month’s pictorials have plenty of that! Anja Rubik was just a modest example, not to mention the very cover!
But if you look closely, there’s another must in Vogue Paris’ pages! Birkenstock sandals! Much like white court shoes, I was really against socks in sandals. They just look like a certified fashion fail. And still, when it makes its way up in Vogue’s pictorials, you kinda start thinking about pairing your Arizona Birkenstocks with thick wool socks. Don’t you?
I do, I’m a simple girl and I loooove my Birkenstock sandals! Wouldn’t trade them for a world of Louboutins (anyone up for the challenge? wink) So during those looong summer nights when we just lounge around on the backyard terrace, I cozy up in a blanket if it gets frisky and I would definitely slip in a pair of warm socks between me and my Birkenstocks.
Because Vogue said so! (the pictures show a very tanned Aymeline Valade playing some sort of working girl/Tomb Raider heroine for Giampaolo Sgura‘s lenses, available thanks to the wonderfully passionate people over at tfs)
