Now Jimmy Choo
Two of my main obsessions are 1) wearable technology and 2) fancy heels. Apparently my obsessions met, fell in love, and had a baby. The birth of their love child, Illuminated Heels, should be the happiest day of my fashion life. So why do I feel like vomiting LED rainbows? I want to be supportive of their new-found relationship, but it seems like they haven’t quite figured out how to exist together. They’re trying too hard. They’re not communicating. There is so much potential for creative and imaginative applications of wearable tech in footwear, but I have to be honest… and call their baby ugly. I’m confident this is the beginning of a beautiful partnership, so I remain hopeful that their future offspring will one day reside on my feet. Until then: Slow down. Relax. Don’t try so hard.
