Every year, the fashion industry comes up with some key product that spills over to the streets in all sizes, shapes and forms. One such product that has seemed to catch everyone’s fancy is the massive tote bag. During Paris Fashion Week in September, the French label Jacquemus debuted its gigantic tan tote bags on the runway, in which you could easily fill your entire world. Other labels like Alberta Ferretti, Boss, Jil Sander and Tom Ford also showcased oversized totes.

2018 has been the year of the weird trends. Prior to this, the Italian high-end brand DSquared2 unveiled their ‘Dad sneaker wedges’ on the ramp during Milan Men’s Fashion Week, and their product was interesting, to say the least.
The fluorescent shoes in question, also known as the ‘Giant Heels’ have three front velcro straps, a wedge heel and – of course – a chunky sole that is a favourite of sneaker lovers around the globe. A rainbow of hues with bright blue, red, yellow, and green piping adorn this unusual piece.
