Had the opportunity to do a whirlwind run around Ion Orchard this afternoon. I didn't have a lot of time so I just scouted the locations of various shops noting which of my targeted flagships were open (LV, Dsquared2, Miu Miu, Sephora, Topshop) and which weren't (Prada, DVF, Marc Jacobs - yes, finally the main collection has a store!!, alldressedup).
More on the rest later but for now I'll mention the pigeon-hole L-shaped Guiseppe Zanotti "flagship" where I spied, for the first time this season in Singapore, LEATHER OTKs!!
My dream Rodartes they are not, but I'm trying to make do. So here's mobile snaps of the Zanotti nappa thigh-high platform boots. I'd have hitched my tee dress up to better capture the boots but I didn't want to flash the sales staff...If you have S$2,300 on hand (which I do not), the store carries 1 pair per size. Admittedly though, the price is pretty staggering for shoes you can't quite use in Singapore - I was actually beginning to ever-so-slightly perspire in them after just 5 minutes in air-conditioning. I should also mention that the store has slightly annoyingly omitted all half-sizes, which really are SO crucial for such boots.
