We should have seen this coming after New York Fashion Week’s odd obsession with QR codes. First came the Yves Saint Laurent eyeshadow in Facebook blue (helps highlight that glassy, staring-at-screens look in your eyes!). At £39, at least that’s cheaper than Christian Louboutin’s attempt at geekiness. The high-end shoe designer is offering its popular Lady Peep stiletto in a tech-inspired pattern for the fall.
“Her intricate satin & embroidery pattern was modeled after modern day computer code. Monsieur Louboutin turned an elaborate programming language into a geek chic pump this season and the results are simply stunning.”
Aww, is that what the fashion world thinks the Internet looks like?
Somehow, we doubt this will dampen interest. As the lady tipster who sent us the link noted, “I won’t lie, those would KILL on first dates in the Valley.”
Not to worry, stylish male technophiles. We have a little something for you too. Today GQ solicited some clothing tips from the founders of Instagram. Kevin Systrom recommends Red Wing boots and “European-cut” Oliver Spencer jackets #nofilter.
