Is it just me, or is there something utterly charming about this picture? It’s Haute Couture Week in Paris (the annual presentation of fall/winter collections), and this is the runway at the Dior show, featuring the new line from lead designer Raf Simons. In a collection full of retro shapes and delicate beadwork and stitching, these brightly whimsical shoes stood out — and, paired with ethereal, floaty skirts, seemed like something out of a Technicolor fairy tale. Wherever they’re walking, I’d follow.
