Yesterday, we learned from a salesman at Barneys about a problem with shoplifiting in the shoe department. Except, the thieves aren't taking the whole shoe. They're just taking the ankle straps. Why? To wear them as bracelets. Of course, we deplore the actions of those sneaking off with the straps, and leaving Barneys with a beautiful pair of Lanvins that they can't sell...and that we can't buy. But we have to give them credit for having a pretty good idea. This morning we attached two of the ankle straps from our pair of silver Gucci sandals together, and wound them around our wrist. The result looks a lot like the double-tour bracelet that Martin Margiela designed for Hermes. Just promise us one thing: That you'll use your own shoe straps to DIY this trend. Because, you know, we really wanted those Lanvins... --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
