First it was Jill Stuart. Then it was Chloe. Now Alexander Wang is the latest designer/brand to name one of his products after Freja. Breaking away from the two before him, Alex decided to go the shoe route rather than the bag route. Behold the Freja Lace-Up Stiletto Boot with Zip Detail:
The second they made their debut on the runway you could hear all the Wangsters and fashionistas alike swooning over the zippered, laced-up, folded-over, seemingly three-shoes-in-one details. They are guaranteed to be the it shoe come spring which means Freja will literally be walking all around us.
It's no secret Alex takes a lot of inspiration from models. He has already named some of his other products after them (most notably the Coco Duffle, although the name has now changed to the Rococo Duffle) and this season also features the Alla (Kostromicheva) Leopard Haircalf Wedge Mule. It was just a matter of time before he used Freja as a namesake since we already know that he's a Freja fan.
How very fitting that next seasons' sure to be most coveted shoe is named after one of fashion's most coveted models. And for once I think the product fits its namesake very well because I can actually picture Freja wearing these and integrating them into her current wardrobe. I couldn't really picture her carrying her Jill Stuart bag:
Nor her Chloe clutch (as gorgeous as it may be):
Alex's shoe gives off the right amount of the downtown, cool girl who doesn't give a shit and looks fabulous without even trying, vibe that fits Freja's sartorial personality much better than the two bags do. What do you think? Would you ever wear or carry Freja? Are some of you going to be making a big shoe purchase come springtime? All I can say is that my bank account is happy my feet can't handle stilettos...
