The fashion army has moved the troops to Paris. It’s the final battle for the fall 2015 shoes, and it’s a little more than halfway complete. One clear victor (have I taken the metaphor far enough?): denim! We saw plenty of high rise and a smattering of high water versions. The seventies influence was strong, with lots of wide-leg and bell bottoms. Interestingly, we’re seeing fewer shredded styles, but lots of unfinished or seemingly ripped-out hems. And it’s clear that while denim was born in America, the French put a certain je ne sais quoi spin on denim styling from which we can all learn a thing or deux.
