One person’s anathema is another person’s delight. And amongst the fashion elite, the latter is often a vertiginous stacked heel; superfluous buckles, studs, and embellishment only sweeten the deal. Because the fashion editor is a rare bred of woman who not only welcomes the peril of a towering pair of stilettos, but relishes it, her inflamed, lacerated feet serving as a badge of honor. Likewise, a slip, here or there, is no longer a sign of poor technique, but rather incisive selection. An It-bag says you love fashion – these shackled and stacked floor-grazing masterpieces say you’ll die for it.
