Guys, Teddy Bear Slippers And Backpacks Are Back Thanks To Vetements

Depressed, but make it fashion.

Vetements is known for taking the nostalgic and making it fashion in an kind of unironic, ironic way. I mean, remember Crocs? Speaking of Crocs, though, they need to move on over. There’s a new ugly in a fashionable shoe in town. And you might even recognise it.

Remember when you were little and you’d go to your friends for a sleepover and pack your most fashionable slippers? Well, mine were Winnie the Pooh. And thanks to Demna Gvasalia, teddy bear slippers are making a comeback. Adult slumber parties FTW.

As part of the Vetements FW20 collection, the brand has debuted a new teddy bear slipper made of cotton, alpaca, and mohair, and it even comes with velcro straps so you can adjust the bear’s paws. But that’s not all: the brand has also brought back the iconic ’90s cool girl accessory: the teddy bear backpack. BRB while I dig through my grandparents attic to look for mine because I don’t have 700 euros.

Based on photos from the brand recent show, the FW20 collection is bringing back sleepwear in a big way, not just through accessories. The designer showed cartoon-printed striped PJ pants with his teddy slippers. It’s Kurt Cobain (who Demna’s channeled before) meets You’re Invited To Mary-Kate & Ashley’s Sleepover Party aka my dream aesthetic in a nutshell. Now I can wear my pyjamas all year and call it fashion.

Thanks, Vetements.
