Browsing for low heeled shoes on the internet I came across a unique and fun styled slingback. This Balenciaga shoe is named Knife Chemise 40 Slingback. The composition is soft nappa lambskin and stripe poplin (cotton and polyester.)

The striking feature is the shirt sleeves that are knotted on the top of the shoe. The shoe is white and the stripe is navy. The link is here:

Priced at $1,150, it also comes in solid black. Either option would be a great addition to an updated shoe wardrobe. The white pair means summer and the black pair would make for a fabulous monotone look for black outfits.

Last month, in one of my blog posts: “Spring Handbags – A Few Favorites” I included the Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie bag. This top handle printed lambskin bag looks like a cotton shirt with knotted sleeves. The link is here:

Priced at $3,000 when wearing it, keep your clothes to the basics and make this Mini Jodie bag the focal point of your outfit.

It is interesting seeing both Balenciaga and Bottega Veneta embracing the knotted shirt in their designs. How did the knotted shirt become a design theme for both? Do you think it will be a theme for other designers, both luxury and lower priced brands?
