Ask Babe: Furkenstocks

Dear Babe,

Is Phoebe Philo playing a cruel joke on all of us? What is with the “Furkenstocks” from the Céline Spring 2013 collection? Are they chic? Or are they just a high fashion version of, dare I say, Crocs? I’m at a loss!




Dear Karl Lagerfeld,

I have to admit, I don’t really have an answer for you on this one. Upon first inspection I was like, “FUCK NO.”

But then I was like, “Maybe?”

And then I was like, “How much Botox am I gonna have to have injected into the soles of my feet to stop them from sweating?”

And then I remembered how much foot Botox hurts, but then I was like “Worth it.”

And then I was like, “Ummmmm?”

And then I was like “Need.”

And then I scheduled a doctor’s appointment because you know what? Fashion is pain, and there’s no way I’m going to allow my foot sweat to fuck up the five pairs of shoes I just pre-ordered from this collection.

I also ordered this purse in a few colors. It’s best to be well rounded.

    You really should have stuck with your original choice of: “FUCK. NO”. Disappointed.

    I LOVED the fur shoes. They’re easily my favorite thing I’ve seen this season. If you don’t get them, you probably don’t know enough about art history. (A Meret Oppenheim moment is always a good thing, particularly with the purses that look like paper bags. Wonderful.) I would totally have a pair made for myself if I wasn’t morally opposed to men wearing sandals while not on the beach.
