The slipper has become an alternative to the ballet flat, and is now seen as a timeless staple of any chic wardrobe. A number of top fashionistas have been spotted wearing the fur-trimmed slippers that Alessandro Michele designed in his debut collection for Gucci. Giuseppe Zanotti Shoes, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood like to cover their slippers in everything from skulls and shark teeth to bows and roses. Charlotte Olympia has come up with a strikingly novel slipper concept that keeps on giving. Her perennially popular “Kitty slippers,” have a devoted following. Renewed every season in an array of colors and seasonally themed variations, these slipper
s have become fashion icons.
