When you think “punk,” your first thought might not be high-end fashion or super-luxe fashion retailer Moda Operandi, but the site’s Punk: From Chaos to Couture boutique, celebrating the theme of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2013 Costume Institute Gala, might just change that. The punk aesthetic has had an indelible impact on modern fashion, and to acknowledge that, Moda has gathered together an enviable mix of designers, artists and vintage purveyors to bring you a unique mix of exclusive pieces that make the link between punk and high fashion clearer than ever.
We, of course, are most interested in the collection’s shoes, which include everything from a Charlotte Olympia x Tom Binns collaboration that we hope continues long into the future to Dr. Martens boots custom graffiti’d by downtown NYC art gallery Klughaus. If you like to play on the dark side of style from time to time, these shoes should be right up your alley. Check them out below or shop the full punk boutique via Moda Operandi.
