The late rock musician Prince left behind an untouchable legacy when he passed away in 2016. Aside from his many musical hits, the icon's personal style-both on and off the stage-was also in a league of its own, and his influence on the fashion world is still felt today. Now, a new exhibit from Paisley Park-Prince's former home and studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, which has since been turned into a museum-is offering a closer look inside Prince's inimitable wardrobe. Specifically, his otherworldly collection of heels, which were a signature element of his look.
For this, designer Victor Glemaud did the costumes, his mastery of knitwear translating perfectly into body-skimming unitards that followed every inch of the dancer's incredible bodies. With music composed by Francesco Geminiani and arranged Golden Goose Sneakers by Michi Wiancko, the piece is an absolute delight.
A glance at your shoe collection can map the story of your life-the black satin Gianvito Rossi stilettos I wore on the first date with my now husband; the Manolo Blahnik white moire sandal I wore to my Newport wedding; the Tabitha Simmons embellished mule I danced all night in at a www.goldengoosers.com friend's restaurant opening; the Chanel ballet flat I wore every day of my maternity leave; and the trusty Jimmy Choo block-heel boot that gets me to and from the office every day.
The collection's imagery and film, directed by Jeannie and starring Chase, captures the instantaneous magic possible in New York. In the short film, Chase is tasked with transporting rolls of fabric between Sui's and Hay's studios to fun but disastrous effect, part of which has to do with her method of transportation: roller skates. The Garment District really is a crossroads for trade, says Jeannie. Hearing Anna and Batsheva talk about contractors, patternmakers, suppliers that they work with. it just made me realize there is this deep network of people in the area who make clothes with such a rich history.
