UNIFORM | Hermes + Vans


Photo of an unofficial collaboration of Vans and Hermes from The Vans 66 flickr album via Miss Moss.

I couldn't help but re-post this photo from the always spot-on blog, Miss Moss; my head nearly exploded when I saw it. It's not an official collaboration, just a custom project made from vintage Hermes scarves. Insane. Oh, and please check out this guest post I did for A Cup of Jo on how to pack smart with tomboy style.

coolest thing i've ever seen in life

Right!? I'm kind of glad they're a custom one-off, because if they were for sale, I might do something impulsive—and I have a feeling they'd be up there in price. :)

I could only see the title of the post, while the page was downloading. I had chicken skin and first day of school butterflies, just imagining what I would find. Of course it's obsession time now. This never ends well....for everyone around me, who I will now drive crazy about these divine shoes. It gets me thinking...

HI Lizzie! I love the guest post on packing! Especially the bandana, I think I have a similar one on right now!

Okay, so ... wow. I, too, am glad these are not available for purchase. Because I'd have to construct a shrine.

Lizzie said...

Hahahaha...totally! (and thanks!)

My 90 year old mother was just asking me if I didn't want her old Hermes scarves! And I thought I wouldn't be able to wear them!

I loved your post on Cup of Jo today. You really inspire me to be true to myself and forget about trying to be something I'm not.

These are beautiful. They really are. So I hate to be the party pooper here, but aren't they also pretty offensive?

Lizzie said...

Interesting, how do you think they might be offensive? I don't see a caricaturization or anything but a straight depiction here, but I could easily be off...

Eva / Sycamore Street Press said...

Lizzie, I have a friend who is Navajo, and we've spoken about these kinds of things before. I do believe he would consider this offensive... but it can be hard to know where to draw the line. This blog post and its comments provide an interesting discussion on Native American inspired fashion: http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2010/04/13/american-indian-is-in/ I hesitated to say anything in the first place, because I'm sure that the designers behind this shoe as well as you and anyone else who have blogged about it mean no disrespect. But I do feel that the subject should be brought up.

I love this blog, BUT there are a number of problems with using Native American imagery as if it is a thing of the past. Too often, images of indigenous men and women or objects of their daily life are used as if they are public property, much in the same colonial tradition that their people were systematically exterminated and made to live in squalor on their own homeland. I ask that, especially in the world of fashion, photographers and designers take the humanity of their subjects and inspiration into account.

For more information on why using Native American imagery is colonialist and racist, take a look at: http://mycultureisnotatrend.tumblr.com/
