Every once in a while I spy an item in a movie that I MUST HAVE. I generally turn to The Possessionista, Celebrity Style Guide, or Star Style Inc. – but this time, I had no luck. But I knew I seriously loved Julianne Moore’s clogs.
And then after an exhaustive Google search, there they were – nestled between two other stylish clogs in New York Times’ T Magazine. I knew them instantly.
The ever-popular New York store, No.6 has long designed chunky clogs, boots and sandals. “It’s so much fun to see everyone embracing something that we have been loving for years,” say No.6 founders Karin Bereson and Morgan Yakus of the clog’s current popularity. “It has also been really fun to take a classic and find a way to give it a modern twist.”
The New York-based designer, Karin Bereson of No. 6, began producing a line of clogs for her boutique in Little Italy, in the fall of 2006. “I just felt it,” says Bereson, who was looking for an antidote to the generic and the mass produced. “There has been a movement back to simple, organic things.”
NY’s No. 6 nails the 70s style on the head, and with the recent fashionable advertisement for their signature open toe weave clog, worn by Julianne Moore in Crazy, Stupid, Love, the clogs are sure to take off. (And land on my shoe rack.)
