History of Womens Vetements Shoes
The French clothing and footwear brand Vetements was formed very recently in 2014 by a collective of designers led by the brothers Demna and Guram Gvasalia. Demna is believed to be the lead creative designer and is very much the face of the business, with Guram taking on the role of CEO (or in his brother’s words “Everything I can’t do, he does.”) However, the rest of the design collective are largely shrouded in mystery which is perhaps quite fitting for such a quirky and playful brand who appear to have sprung from nowhere to swiftly take the entire industry by storm. The footwear range has caused a sensation on Instagram, thanks to the mischievous designs and the very distinctive heels which are often crafted into unusual shapes such as lighters or stacks of coins. Vetements is also currently making waves with their new collaborations with global sports giant Reebok. The results of the creative partnership include new takes on the sock sneaker trend and the debut of the ‘Reebok Pump Genetically Modified Shoe’.

Famous people wearing Vetements Shoes
The fashion media recently cooked up lively debate on a “shoe-down” between Rita Ora and Rihanna. Both were spotted in the same month sporting Vetements stretch boots with lighter-shaped heels, and critics were pondering over which celebrity pulled off the look best. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is clearly in love with her new Vetements over-the-ankle boots, having been regularly seen in them while out and about, and also wearing them in almost every shot of a recent spread in Vogue magazine. Kylie Jenner was happy to share a picture on Instagram which showed off her super-chunky Vetements sneakers, while Georgia May Jagger was wearing Vetements platform boots at the Sunglass Hut Event. Vetements has even made it into The White House, with Kim Kardashian West wearing the brand during a presidential meeting with Donald Trump.
