The year 2019 started with Viktor and Rolf dedicating an entire collection of haute couture gowns to memes. It is now ending with Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta’s new pair of heels called the ‘Macrame heels’ which look a lot like Ramen noodles. Clearly, the year 2019 was all about for memes.
‘Macrame heels’ by Bottega Veneta belong to their pre-fall collection. The Instagram account ‘Diet_Prada’ that can be best described as self-proclaimed watchdogs of fashion, were the first ones to catch this similarity. They posted the picture, with the caption 'Chicken or Shrimp?', 'What flavours they come with?', etc.
were quick to add their version of similarities. Some pointed out it looked a lot like former NSYNC band member Justin Timberlake’s hair in 199.
These yellow open-toed mule sandals have been designed by the English designer Daniel Lee. The 33-year-old designer was awarded at this year’s British Fashion Awards with Accessories Designer of the Year, British Designer of the Year Womenswear, Brand of the Year and Designer of the Year awards.
In 2018, Balenciaga also brought a new collection of slippers, which surprisingly looked like McDonald's fries boxes. It had immediately become meme material for Twitter users.
