You know I'm not sure - I don't think it has anything to do with copper though. Natural indigo usually has a red cast, but I was shown some that had green recently and was told that the dying method influences the final look.

It's a desirable thing these days, but there's a tribe (Black Hmong) that I went to see in northern vietnam who HATE it. They repeatedly dip their fabrics in indigo, sometimes for up to a year, to get the fabric as black as possible -- and a reflective cast is their no.1 enemy.

Margiela shoes - $315.00

Was eyeing up/trying on some very similar ones to these recently and this is a good price, argh. Sizing on MMM shoes is all over the bloody shop though.

Fuuuuck I really want to buy this but I don't have the funds, so if someone sees it in the next 4 hours, snatch it up.

I owned these for a blink of an eye, they run even smaller than most margiela footwear which tends to run fucking small

really great leather, shape and details tho

I wonder if the house was putting the pick stitch on their shoes while Martin was still with them
