With Born This Way star Lady Gaga’s name almost equivalent to sky-high killer heels, we cannot help but notice she’s been hanging out a lot with these monstrous sawtooth platform boots lately, sparing not any alternative colours and patterns that come by. So who is Gaga’s newfound love? The name is Longenecker, creation of the aspiring Vietnamese designer, Long Tran.
Long Tran infuses his wild sci-fi fantasies into his R.I.P. SS14 collection, including those staggering futuristic platforms Mother Monster raided to complete with her typical Gaga-esque outfits. While Gaga is known for making famous every shoe piece that graced her rumoured-size 6 feet (notably Noritaka Tatehana’s heel-less platforms), we could be looking at the next shining star in the avant-garde section.
More dare-you-to-wear than ready-to-wear, Long Tran’s collection or a Gaga-style wardrobe speaks larger to the boundless possibility in the realm of self-expression, perhaps a reason that can explain Gaga’s growing army of little monsters.
