Got a surprise in the email box today from UrbanDaddy
, promoting Ms. Sevigny's update of the Bass line for Opening Ceremony
Normally I prefer the classics, rather than someone's wry take on them, but for whatever reason Chloë Sevigny's twist on the legendary (and Preppy Handbook approved) Bass Weejun caught my attention. While some designers go off the farm and others barely make an dent in the original form, this collaboration retains enough of the the original classic while addding thoughtful innovation to make the whole venture worthwhile.
Her contrasting panel Weejuns recall the spectator shoe - a classic item enjoying quite a resurgence recently.
These are the white contrast
Weejuns. Definitely a bold statement - but if one can wear go-to-hell pants, why not go-to-hell Weejuns?
If the above are a little much, then the Burgundy contrast Weejun
may be more your speed. As seen in the following images, the contrast is subtler.
At $170, these are pricier than the regular Weejuns which normally go for about $100 - but inexpensive enough to pick up without seriously breaking the bank. Personally, I'm a fan of both.
