Vetements is selling £680 teddy bear slippers for anyone dedicated to the snug life
Vetements is here to answer all your autumnal fashion goals with their own take on teddy bear slippers.
As the weather cools and you can hear the whispers of pumpkin spice latte in the breeze, its time to say farewell to summer fashion of plastic shorts and XX, and welcome autumn – the time when you can really start dressing.
Autumn calls not for cutouts and bright prints, but for cosy layers. Its a time when you no longer have to attempt to embrace trends and can retreat into a cosy cocoon of jeans and jumpers.
The peak of autumn cosy clothing is, of course, the humble slipper.
But true fashion types and dedicated members of the autumn fashion squad will not settle from any old slip-on fleece number from M&S.
No, friends. It is time now for teddy bear slippers. And not just any teddy slippers you can pick up from the kids section in a department store, but the Hug Me Bear slippers by Vetements.
Priced at £680 and crafted from a cotton, alpaca, and mohair blend, these slippers are decidedly fancier than the ones you usually shuffle around the house in.
Theyre also objectively ridiculous, which is exactly the point. Youre wearing teddy bears on your feet. Little bears that are cuddling your toes. Its weird.
On Net-a-Porter the slippers are shown styled with trackpants (£550) and a sports bra style top (£165), so its easy to fall into the trap of thinking these slippers are for schlepping around your kitchen.
This would be a terrible mistake.
Yes, such slippers should be worn all the time at home for maximum cosiness, but if youre spending £680 they also need to be worn outside the house.
We reckon you could pair them with your midi dress for an ahead-of-the-curve alternativeRead More – Source
