In addition to the Yeezy boots Kim Kardashian was spotted in last week, she has scored yet another pair of denim shoes to add to her coveted footwear collection. They are actually custom-made patchwork denim thigh high boots designed by Rox Brown in collaboration with Trinity. VFiles stylist Rox Brown released the collab on Vfiles.com on Wednesday, July 27 and they promptly sold out the same day. It's absolutely no one’s surprise Mrs. West was the first person to get her hands on the unique design. If you were a little trigger shy with such a statement-making shoe, don't fret, because you can style just like the reality TV queen by placing a pre-order now for the next batch of denim beauties.
If you’re not familiar with Brown, you can spot her styling work all over the web, or occasionally on the likes of Kylie Jenner, Justine Skye and other trend-setting celebs. She has a proclivity for sexed up streetwear that these denim boots capture perfectly.
Let’s not forget to mention the dope metal box packaging they come in!
We caught up with the stylist and got the scoop on the bold boot design, how she keeps up with her hot clientele and all things denim.
BET: What was your inspiration behind the line?
Rox Brown: I’ve been wanting to create something for a long time but was waiting for the right moment. I style, but people always ask me about doing my own design. I didn’t want to just do anything. And this collaboration with Trinity was it. I don't like to wear pants if I don’t have to, so with this boot you don't. It’s like you’re wearing jeans without having to.
B: What would you style these with?
RB: Denim. Maybe a cute pair of cut-offs. But nothing too much since the boots are already a statement piece. I’d even keep it simple with white tee.
B: Kim Kardashian is the proud owner of a pair, that’s major. Can you tell us how that came about?
RB: She actually got the first pair. They were supposed to be mine but when I got the call from Kanye’s stylist that Kim was interested in them, I made sure she got the first pair. Since they are handmade, each pair is not exactly the same but still has the patchwork in the different washes.
B: Kylie Jenner and Justine Skye are two of fashion's hottest “it” girls right now. What was the experience like being able to dress them?
RB: It’s always fun to style them. But with anyone I work with I like to style based on what they like. Then I work with that and suggest things that complement their unique look.
B: What’s next?
RB: I don’t know what’s next. But there will be something. I don't want to just make shoes. If I want to make clothes, I’ll do that. If I want to make bags, I’ll do that too. I’m not going to limit myself to just one thing. I don’t want anyone to keep me in a box. So you’ll just have to wait and see.
B: We’re currently gearing up for our "How to Rock: Denim" fashion show at BET, so we’re curious to know how you rock denim?
RB: With everything. All the time. When can you not wear denim? It’s versatile.
If you’re like Rox #TeamNoPants, avoid a major case of FOMO and scoop these boots up before they sell out again.
