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.
