The 38-year-old designer also included flesh-toned heels with built-in toenails painted red, giving an illusion of clear-plastic stilettos showing off the model's perfectly pedicured feet.
Meanwhile the fur-covered stilettos and their fuzzy flashes of colour encompassed the foot much like a furry tea-cozy might cover a teapot.
The fur-lined flat sandals, designed in a Birkenstock vein, seemed to be a hit with The New York Times' Cathy Horyn
She wrote of her collection: 'I guess Ms. Philo didn’t feel like getting dressed. Seriously, though, who wouldn’t be tempted to throw a big housewife yawn at all the noir-satin looks on the runways? Who wouldn’t want to wear furry slippers all day?'
What Phoebe Philo designs, women usually want. And end up buying.
The designer, now in her fourth year at the helm of Celine, sent out a spring collection of covetable, cool, loose-fitting clothes; which were paired with outlandish furry shoes. And there is nary a negative review in sight.
But her mink-lined leather sandals, and pumps covered in red, lavender and Big Bird-yellow mink felt more like a 'the joke is on you' than a viable option for the shoe rack.
