Well, sort of. Expect to see sparkly shins everywhere this autumn as Saint Laurent’s disco boots become the most imitated item on the high street
Once upon a time (well, in February), a pair of knee-high boots, salted with 3,000 tiny individual rhinestones, walked down the Saint Laurent catwalk in Paris. The industry instantly swooned, as if under the spell of head designer Anthony Vaccarello. But a month later they were spotted on the feet of pop’s most fearless and fashion-savvy princess, Rihanna. Then came a shoot of Cara Delevingne in this September’s Elle, the feet of 2017’s beacon of fashion-forward hope Celine Dion, and, just like that, their status as the boot of the moment was cemented.
