‘Game of Thrones’ Inspires New Helmut Lang & LD Tuttle Footwear
Who knew the rangers of the Night’s Watch were so on-trend? Apparently Helmut Lang and LD Tuttle, because they’ve just revealed that this rugged band of soldiers on HBO’s epic fantasy series Game of Thrones motivated their fall footwear capsule. Naturally, the range features wedges and booties in 100% goat and calf suede, as well as "prints inspired by the mystical forest," per the release. Is this a fashionable medieval nerd’s dream come true or what?
Although the collection urges you to channel your inner Jon Snow, I have a hard time believing that the bastard son of Lord Eddard Stark would fork over the dough required to acquire these warrior chic styles. The midnight floral leather wedge bootie in red multi (above, left) is $695 and the burnished suede bootie in "deer" (above, right) is $645. There’s also a suede tall boot for $795 and flat boot for $750.
Wait until these styles officially hit stores on August 2, or shop them online now here.
