So they tanned his hide when he died, Clyde, and Gucci made a pair of loafers out of it:
During their Fall show last year, Gucci had their runway models strut their stuff in what appeared to be wig adorned & human hair lined footwear. Hair shoes, really. Seriously, though, some of the ugliest shoes of 2015, if you want to check them out!
But apparently these horrid shoes were soooo popular, that they’ve come out with the exact same line of wigged out shoes for the current, Fall 2016 season. With some newly added special designs. And yes, I’m talking that kind of special.
The effect is something like bunny slippers made from actual bunnies:
Natural hued, real long animal hair is particularly grotesque. Like these Gucci designs, that give me a serious case of the creepy crawlies. And I’m not even a vegetarian or anything. Can you imagine the disgusted reactions of the vegans to shoes that look like wearable, taxidermied animals? Ick.
Except to the magazine editors during fashion weeks, because they live in a world that is theirs (and theirs alone!).
As if the thousand-dollar price tag wouldn’t be offputting enough.
