Ten Loves: Louis Vuitton Beaubourg Platform Derby Shoes
Welcoming the drop of new season collections is basically a fashion’s version of New Year. And what is a NY without all the resolutions? Our list for AW19 includes pearl jewellery, loads of colour blocking and being comfortable. While our Editrix might disagree (shhh – we’ve recently seen her in flat sandals!), we’ve decided there’s too many things happening in the world that, in order to deal with it all, we need a pair of comfy shoes on our feet. You know, the kind of shoes that will take you from place to place and be your best friend in dealing with all the Trumps and Johnsons you have to look straight into the eyes every day. In those moments of frustration, just look down. No, not because you’re backing down or showing off your weaknesses. You look down at your feet to remind yourself that you’ve got a pair of kick-ass Louis Vuitton Beaubourg platform derby shoes splashed with the LV monogram print.
Originally seen on that powerful 1980s-themed catwalk recreating the look of the Pompidou museum in Louvre, these kicks were a love at first sight. Functional, retro but with that robust, tech-y signature by Nicolas Ghesquière – they were also named after the Parisian area housing the Pompidou. You don’t need to know how to speak French in order to get yourself a pair of Beaubourgs. Just point at the pair you like – black, white or full monogram – and yell out your size. That’s a French lesson à la 10.
The Louis Vuitton Beaubourg Platform Derby Shoe is be available to shop online and in selected stores.
