Pierre Hardy’s art-school roots are in full swing. There is certainly a lot of visuals going on here: multiple colors, nebulous shapes, snakeskin, and, of course, the cubist web, a trademark Hardy theme.
The shield of transparent cubes is reminiscent of the old arcade video game Q*Bert, which dates me and most of you won’t even know. But it gives the sandals a low-tech 3D look. Back in my youth (yes, because I am an ancient old lady), a three-dimensional effect was only made possible by crossing your eyes a certain way.
Wearable? Most definitely. These transfixing layers have enough personality to lend some to the rest of your outfit. But beware: you will have naysayers shaking their heads. Who cares! Isn’t that part of the fun of being out there? On My Theresa for $1,485.
Pair with: You don’t, however, want to be too out there. This fit-and-flare dress by A.L.C. is simplistic all white yet has subtle geometric lines to stay in keeping with your cubist movement. At Barneys New York for $360.
