It looks like Estrella Archs' departure from Emanuel Ungaro has started a trend of reshuffling. Yesterday Iceberg confirmed that Massimo Trumbatore, who has been designing their womenswear line for only 6 months, is leaving the brand. According to The Cut, the split is said to be "consensual" but I can't help but think that there will be more to this story soon.
Jimmy Choo Black Suede 'Hilde' Thigh High Boots $956
Perforated Thigh High Boots Stella McCartney £715
Thigh-high boots may have been the most unexpected trend to stick around throughout AW09, but after being flaunted by the likes of Rihanna, Madonna, Blake Lively and even Stella McCartney herself, we’re sure the warming winter boots are here to stay.
Wear with a cosy sweater dress, underneath a chic black coat a la Carine, or vamp it up with a rocky biker jacket and short shorts to get the Alice Dellal effect. There’s the classic options – thigh high, leather and heeled, or comfy suede flats – or if you’re feeling fierce like Rihanna, try the perforated Stella McCartney’s (faux leather, naturally), Hussein Chalayan's strapped pair or Topshop’s very own lace up, hiker style boots.
The catwalks of SS10 focussed entirely on the legs, with enough thigh-skimming hemlines to scare any hibernating pins, so although Spring may seem the time to dust off those legs in preparation for Summer – weather permitting – we feel it might be somewhat more sensible to invest in a good pair of thigh highs to keep those legs warm come next year.
