cyborg platform prosthetic
This was a tricky shot to get, not only was it taken on the London underground, but our banter of fashion allusions was not lost in the translation of French vocabulary, or lack of caring. However, this complex foot ornament reminded me of a Balenciaga cyborg platform Pierre Hardy collaboration. Turns out it was a prosthetic, a morbidly 'chic' reference, but could you think of a better team for the job? Wouldn't you choose Balenciaga as a permanent part of you too? or is that already passe?
