Guardian Watch 7 October 2009

In G2, Jess Carter-Morley writing about Style at Paris fashion week. I wouldn't normally have read this, but she was talking about reading Mantel's Wolf Hall while in Paris, and drawing explicit parallels between 21st century fashion week and 16th century court life and dress, which was interesting.

"My absolute favourite shoe of the week, however, was found not on the catwalk, but at British shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey's mini-showroom: his Finn lattice calf-high open-work boot is a piece of art. I saw it and said, in the courtly 21st-century fashion vernacular, something like "OMG, I LOVE IT!" Kelsey explained, rather more elegantly, that it was based on science fiction and ancient Egypt. But what's a couple of thousand years between friends?"

That really is an amazing 'boot'.
