Sherpa for Next Fall?

As some of you may have seen, one pervasive trend spanning from London to Paris seems to be sherpa-lined, cropped aviator jackets. They provide a wonderful contrast in texture and is practical in that it guarantees warmth. I love how Christopher Bailey and Giles Deacon have both updated not only the silhouette but also the history of the fabric.

If you look closely, you can even see evidence of a tromp l'oeil shadow of a wingtip. They seem so utilitarian and desctructive, yet maintaining a sense of elegance with the thinness of the heel. What I really like about this boot is that Bailey acknowledges the multi-strap shoe trend, but remains true to his aesthetic and doesn't cross into the territory of over-done or tacky as with Louboutin's Nitoinimoi shoe as pictured below.

These are horrible!

On another note, these Dries Van Noten moccasin/oxford hybrid are beautiful in their androgyny and masculinity. Way to go Dries!
