FASHION REPETITION: Chloé “Susan” Studded Ankle Boots
The French fashion house, Chloé, was established in the 1950s challenging the market with delicate body conscious clothes of fine fabrics. Prior to Chloé’s launch, luxury fashion houses had only produced Haute Couture (i.e. made-to-measure) clothing. It was Gaby Aghion who introduced Prêt-à-Porter (ready-to-wear) garments, and now, footgear.
When the “Susan” Studded Ankle Boots hit the streets, girls nationwide went gaga over the design. If you’re familiar with the blogosphere, then you’ve seen talk of these boots travel quickly amongst the fashion bloggers it’s first drop in ’09. Due to the heavy demand, Chloé re-launched the product four years later.
Celebrities who have owned the Chloe Studded Boots are: Willow Smith; Ashley Greene; Jessica Szohr; Lindsey Lohan; Ashley Tisdale; Kate Hudson; Sienna Miller; and Katie Holmes.
You can purchase the Chloé “Susan” Studded Ankle Boots at Barney’s for $519 instead of the retail price $1,295.
