Apparently the little lantern shoes the Kaiser himself designed for Repetto haven't really been selling. "Our spy dropped into American Rag this weekend on La Brea, which is the only LA outpost carrying the Lagerfeld for Repetto shoes (they are NOT on the American Rag website) - the higher heeled shoe is around $450.00 and the flat is around $350.00 - both come in black or white, and the big attraction is the detachable “parasol” that fits around the ankle and is very chic - even though those prices seem a little steep. Reportedly, the Lagerfeld shoes haven’t moved much yet - perhaps they’ll go on sale!!!" [Fashion Rules; Previously]
