✩#24 – Gal News: OKxESPERANZA Second Collab✩

My blog didn’t have this segment when the first collab came out!

Last October, Office Kiko (OK) and Gal brand ESPERANZA joined together for a fantastical 90s Gyaru collaboration! It was a beautiful chunky platform tribute to the first era of Gal.

During this time, many styles appeared and they were fun and colorful. Gals also mostly used anything with a huge heel or platform when it came to shoes.

The OKxESPERANZA collab featured these gorgeous platform boots that came in different styles, patterns and some even featured a retro flower cutout. Every single Gyaru, including myself, lost our minds when this collection came out. (I still need to get a pair!)

And what screams more 90s than platform boots? How about chunky platform sandals and wedges? I am happy to report that the two brands have come together once again, just in time for the summer. But this time we have more of a summer theme.

We have the Cross Strap Wedge Sandals.
