Very strong shoes and accessories, in classical bourgeois style, reminder of past decades or very extravagant. Le Silla uses all his energy to express the depths of his soul but he also makes attractive and measured offers for different kinds of women.

She’s a Bad Girl with a strongly rebellious streak, perhaps towards crisis, and she wears her shoes as though they were armour to hide her fragility and make her strong and independent. She's elegant but ferocious, a Lady Gaga or a Rihanna who keeps her arms at their feet.
