For ages I lusted after a pair of Aigle rain boots. I stalked the J Crew website like a crazed freak. While on holiday a friend Caroline and I found them on deep deep sale at a store that was closing down. We pounced on them. It was like they were meant to be mine. And since we are having all this rain, I've hauled them out and loving the opportunity to wear them. I found some work taken by photographer Vincent Leroux that he did for Aigle for their 150th anniversary, celebrated in style at concept store Merci in Paris. Love the images, and wish I could lay my hands on some of those metal boot lasts. They would look so good somewhere in my house.
