Clad in indigo calf hair, rippling reptilian prints and a seemingly infinite coat of rhinestones, this season’s hottest shoes stride rather than teeter, applying a Bacchus-like intemperance to texture, shape and height to demand all of the attention. Hearing their siren call, LN-CC reunites with Istanbul-born, London-based photographer Begum Yetis, slipping away from the dancefloor in favour of the bathroom floor.
A haven for drunken confessionals, internet-breaking selfies and social battery recharge, the nightclub bathroom levels up its bid to be the real party within the party, providing the backdrop to a glut of scene-stealing, disco-ready high heels. Vertiginous Versace platforms in gleaming satin play peekaboo behind a cubicle door and ultra-arched Saint Laurent courts stamp the archetypal French monogram onto the toilet lid, as Gianvito Rossi’s powder-white sandals play classic sex appeal to JW Anderson’s frivolous tubular mules.
Three-dimensional, kitten, stiletto or block heel, the party has started, and the best lighting is in the bathroom.
