|Alexander McQueen Shoes a grounded|
I remember when Tabitha called me to ask about the dress [in 2016], and I took that as a really good sign, Vevers says. Not long afterwards, I saw her wearing it at the Greenwich Hotel, so the Alexander McQueen Sneakersdress felt like a really natural starting point for us. Their collaboration includes familiar styles from both designers, like Simmons's pointy-toe Alexander McQueen Sale Hermione flat and Vevers's foam wedge combat boots, in new collages of jewel-toned floral velvets. Other silhouettes haven't been seen before, like the flat lace-up sandal with sheer mesh and velvet, a grounded twist on Simmons's signature Freya stilettos. Tabitha's taste is very refined and elegant, and then Coach shoes are a bit more down-to-earth, so I found it interesting to bring those two aesthetics together, Vevers says.
But thanks to the jolie laide shoe phenomenon (kick-started back in 2013 with Phoebe Philo's Celine furkenstocks), Tevas have become more than just a functional shoe in 2019. Not only are Teva sandals now trendy-a fact that recent collaborations with Anna Sui and Outdoor Voices prove-but according to Lyst, Tevas are the trendiest shoes of the year so far. The shopping website's just-released Lyst Index, which determines the hotness of a product via a proprietary metric that takes into account the habits of the Alexander McQueen Shoes site's 5 million monthly users as well as social media stats, ranks Teva's Hurricane XLT2 sandals as the hottest women's shoe and the second hottest women's product for the second quarter of 2019. The website estimates that searches for the shoe increased 350 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2018, making it more popular than any stiletto or sneaker in the market. The only item to outpace the Teva on Lyst's report comes from-who else?-Virgil Abloh, whose Off-White Jitney bag ranks as the site's hottest item.
