I was staring at this, trying to come up with something other than, "How to turn a great Alexander Wang bag into a garbage bag with zippers," when Faran sent me this - the Jeffrey Campbell shoe at left. Alex sent the shoes - with buckles, in snakeskin, with ruched leather, always platformed - down his AW09 runway. Since then we've seen them on Jak & Jil, at every party south of 14th street, on celebrity feet and on the pages of Vogue to Dazed. In short, they were a hit. So like Marc's famous booties and Acne's sold-out wedges, Jeffrey Campbell's made his own. They're $173, which is probably about $500 less than Wang's, and made from real leather. However, the leather lacks the sheen of Wang's, and so do the three bronze buckles. Though we will say Jeffrey Campbell's much better at this than Steve Madden.
