When flipped open this month’s W Magazine and saw this ad by Louis Vuitton, I literally swooned. Not only are the boots absolutely gorgeous but they are COMPLETELY utilitarian. They are actually rain boots! No more fisherman rubbery things for me. As I learned at a great course this year called Hyper Island Master Class (a program to retrain our brains for the digital age), “Utility is the new cool”. Boy, is it ever!
