In the hands of Raf Simons, boots for summer jump from oxymoron to instant fashion relevance. The curved heel and leather toecap are classic Dior; but who would have expected French couture to reference Nike’s groundbreaking Flyknit technology? The fabric is cutting-edge – a lightweight and elasticised hand-knit that is breathable and easy to wear, making it an unexpected alternative to sandals and tired gladiators. In one fell swoop,
Simons has effortlessly brought futurism into Dior’s language of couture heritage and savoirfaire. Priced at RM7,250. Dior, G28, Indulge Floor,
