My friend Kristen got really cute platform sneakers from Chloe Sevigny at Opening Ceremony. I’m walking Booker to and fro the studio most days, which means I’ve been wearing either my Chukka boots or a pair of cutoff vintage boots I made….hit top platform sneakers would still be comfy but add a little insouciance to my walk:)
first up: the simple white ones at Opening Ceremony ($265, made in China)

I’ll be giving a talk about ethical and sustainable design at the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert this Thursday. I’ll be talking about working close to home, making what I consider to be the “right” choices in producing clothing, and about where I think the industry is heading. Calleen Cordero will also be speaking, and I’m looking forward to her take on everything, especially as she produces everything in her own factory in North Hollywood.
Here are some of my favorites of her new shoes.
