DP shoes for spring/summer 09

Designing shoes is fairly new to me. It's a different ballgame altogether than making clothes. I had a client recently and I was the one who measured his feet and let's just say it was an utter disaster. I had to ask my shoemaker to redo the whole thing, hehehe. But I'm getting better understanding of the whole process.

Anyhoot, I've done a unisex sandal for s/s 09 and here's 4 of the colors:

'fuckin fuchsia'

'fresh flesh'

'pimple pink'

'rash red'

The 'battle blue' version I don't have anymore. Made of soft calfskin leather it's very comfortable to wear. This one is the lighter version of the thick soled one I released last year. It seems gladies are here to stay based on the s/s 09 runway reports. I like the version at Givenchy best:

I like the last one!

Yea vintage 501's are love. Especially if they come pre-distressed for you!

What do the lanvin x acne ones look like? Baka naman majorly overpriced! (I find the regular acne jeans mahal na nga eh.) Besides that, I have a feeling they'd be very hard to find.

wax - it's in backstage but im not sure my current stock status there.

blagadag - why not poknut? seryoso ka? :) i can supply stuff for you.

k - mwah! salamat sa support.

izzy - im sure it's going to be overly priced. the hype warrants for it. club 21 (bangkok/singa) i heard will carry it. im sure joyce will stock it, too. good luck sa h&f. they'll ask for your liver, im sure.

haha true. i can imagine!

btw, what style of balenciaga do you plan on getting? I recently saw an extra-courier (super extra large version of mine) in anthracite at homme et femme. kind of on the pricey side though, 76k i think! I would love to have a weekender in the old midnight too....

i just really want the 'classic' balenciaga with the strap and tassels. i don't fancy the giant and men's style they have.

luxury goods in manila are grossly overpriced unless on sale. i'd rather buy in bangkok or hk. :)
