In Sarah Burton‘s vision for Fall 2011 Alexander McQueen, one of the many components she nailed spot-on are the thigh-high open-front lace-up platform heeled boot. In gray. This evokes the “Icy Queen and Her Court” as she envisioned it, while also capturing exactly what we will most certainly be needing in roughly six months’ time. With the peekaboo sliver, I envisage a frenzy of patterned, textured, hued tights that won’t be lost under the many boots to which we’ve grown accustomed. Now just imagine the possibilities if you were to untie, fold and morph the leather, just for kicks. With that, this McQueen boot is a shoe-in for Autumn. In fact, I can already see Lady Gaga working these in my mind.
