So Hot Right Now: POOL SLIDES

30 June 2014

It's officially the summer my dear stalkers and it's also time to get out those sandals, but you can leave those flip flops in the cupboard, because this summer it's time to embrace the ugly but rather fabulous pool slides! This is another item like the UGG boot that has the ability to divide the fashion pack into lovers and haters and will conjure up all kinds of remarks such as; “Remind me to give my dad a ring and tell him how on-trend he is.” !!

I shot the gorgeous Pandora Sykes wearing her slides (which she totally rocks) that she bought a while back, trust our PS to be ahead of the trends!!



Garance Dore, my favourite style and blogging queen, has even done their family tree!!
"1988: I was born.

2000: I played soccer, and I couldn’t play soccer without a pair of these slides.
2001: I quit soccer. But I wore my slides to summer camp. And everywhere. With everything. Even with socks.
2003: I part ways with my slides (amicably) and probably because I traded them for bejeweled flip flops.
2006: There is a photo of Mark Zuckerberg in the New York Times wearing the velcro version of this slide.
2010: The slide appears throughout the movie, The Social Network.
June 2013: The slides appear in a resort look book. Chloé does their take on the slide for resort.
October 2013: Spotted the slides in an editorial for Interview (on Karlie Kloss, no less). Our Adilettes are everywhere as a more radical alternative to the already old news Birkenstock.
Today: The Adidas flagship in SoHo only has the slides available in a men’s size 11. They have been out of stock for weeks, guys!'

Here are some of my current slides crushes!
