SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER
Tamara Mellon is resurrecting the halcyon days of Studio 54 with a limited-edition line of rugcutting platform sandals that are made from silk scarves she sourced from vintage shops in Los Angeles. From fuchsia geometric triangles to psychedelic paint drips, each kaleidoscopic pattern is groovier than the last. The vertiginous platforms, called the “Kaleidoscope,” are created from a single scarf, making each pair one of a kind. Even if two pairs are fashioned from the same print (one scarf can yield two pairs of shoes), the pattern falls differently on each. Mellon describes the shoe as “a celebration of individuality and unapologetic feminism.” The distinctive shoes are Mellon’s way of observing that every woman is unique. They are set to launch on March 8— International Women’s Day.
