Artist Richard Saja takes toile ( you know, that wallpaper in your foofy nana’s bathroom) and adds mohawks, clown attire and anything extraordinary via needlepoint to those frolicking old-timey people. So, in honor of Fashion’s Night Out a few weeks ago (I know I’m sooooo late on this), Opening Ceremony and Keds teamed up with Richard Saja ( is he related to Sanjaya? because that would be really hawt.) to make toile Keds. Keds just got a total upgrade because last I remember, Keds were for square, preppy kids in the 90s. Basically, if you liked New Kids on the Block, you wore Keds (and no I wore Docs and clogs ( don’t laugh)). Anywho, I can deal with toile Keds- actually, I love love love toile so I gonna hunt these down and make a pair MINE! What a tangled web we weave!

The original French Punk , Jean Paul Gaultier has teamed with British combat boot maker, Dr. Marten. With laser -cut diamond holes on each side of the boot, it now matters what socks you’ll be wearing. I would with go hot pink socks! These 14 hole Doc’s will run about 300 Euros, which is probably $5,000 with all the inflation and the ‘obnoxious American’ tax. You know Europe probably has an ‘Obnoxious American’ tax by now. It’s been lowered since Obama took over, though. Kidding! I wish they had these boots in the mid -nineties when I would actually wear these. It’s funny, the Doc’s were worn by the punk anarchists and the conservatives wore Keds. I tell you-when in doubt, look at the shoes.
