Buono Bonito

Buono Bonito

>> Glitter legend has it that there’s a factory somewhere in the depths of home counties where designer shoes and bags routinely get sprayed and applied with glitter and sparkle with deft skill and supposedly specialist machinery.  I’ve yet to track it down exactly but when I do, I will demonstrate my devotion to all things glitter with a naff Powerpoint presentation tracking the various instances where I’ve been glitter-bombed – Meadham Kirchhoff’s SS10 hardened glitter t-shirts, Miu Miu’s glitter brogues and pumps, Estefania Cortes Harker’s glitter flat planes and now, finally after ogling from afar, I’ve ventured down under and returned in glittery triumphant – the x  Bonito boots are !  I remember copping a feel of them when the seemingly unexpected original collaboration between the Aussie cult label and traditional Italian shoe manufacturer debuted around two years ago when the Bonito desert boot came in black, silver and gold.  Ever since then, they’ve been spotted on many a pair of knowing feet causing serious glitter envy on my part.  It’s a heady combustion between the particles of flighty light refracting glitter and Diemme’s expertise in hunting, mountaineering and trekking footwear, which has resulted in their manufacturing shoes for the likes of Maison Martin Margiela, Chanel and Bottega Veneta.  A solid Vibram sole and soft-leather linining mean these boots are seriously made for walking… or hiking, biking, cycling… whatever you wish.

Good things come to those who wait though as two years after the Bonito glitter boot debut, for their , the boot has now expanded to include a and in addition to the original black and also, there’s the ever prevalent slip-on options too.

“In a land of finite logic where natural anomaly rules, people dance in summer snowfall and become transparent. Smoke and snow impair your vision, but movement and energy convey greater meaning anyway. Orogeny is caused by extremes in motion, against and together – rustling in the undergrowth for millions of years, lifeforms merge and divide. New entities rise from volcanic ash blanketing the shoreline.”

The vague yet evocative chunk of text above accompanying this particular footwear collaboration is dreamer stuff.  Not that you’d need it to persuade you to join this glitter-infested light side.  I’ve done some bouncing in them already in Tokyo, where I have currently landed.  Joy.  Happiness.  Nuff’ said.

In other  to accompany their new “Power Source collection, with memory foam padding are also tickling my fancy.  One half of P.A.M. duo Shauna Toohey was bouncing up and down in them quite comfortably at the P.A.M. party in Sydney last Thursday.  That alone was convincing evidence that these shoes are made for serious movement.  An apt summation for most of what P.A.M. do actually hence why my suitcase is already dangerously 3/4 full from my jaunt in Sydney.

    Lucky you – Tokyo already/ I’m headed there soon too.
    I like that feather/fuzz sweater and I like the glitter slip on sneakers.
    I can see why you like Rousseau sandals – they have an interesting heel. Not quite my style so I’ll just settle for the slip ons.

    PS Nice to see you at MBFWA

    Love that the print of the sweater reflects the fuzziness of the skirt. And those shoes are so fun!
