Not only is what we are now calling "Gargoyle Toe" becoming rampant on the streets (as evidenced almost daily on Jak & Jil) but more and more on the runways as well.
I understand that there are a lot of last minute changes in what models are wearing what but with the ever-increasing importance and focus on the accessories showcased as they walk down the runway, I find it hard to believe that this is not distracting.
Then there are those designers who understand the importance of the fit and the shoes to the collection. The Prada and Miu Miu shows are my favorites because they pay attention to and even celebrate these details.
But sadly, I have to say I was not a fan of the latest Prada shoes presented. After being enthralled for the past few seasons I was more disturbed by the shoes and what was done to the model's toenails.
At first I thought there was just some issues with several of the model's nails but then I saw they were clear overlays and intentional!
Perhaps I not getting it but I've never liked the overly long nail look on hands or feet. I don't even think a French Pedicure look is good because it is meant to imitate longer nails. So this I just don't get.
While I understand this is part of the fantasy and style of the show, do you feel it enhances the design and overall collection?
