Paris fashion was reeling Sunday from Balenciaga's outrage/stroke of genius – platform Crocs.Balenciaga's iconoclast designer Demna Gvasalia is known for seeing the beauty in the banal, with some critics accusing him of "poverty chic" – remaking the clothes of the poor for the rich.Last year the Scottish designer Christopher Kane produced a $590 line of fur-lined and crystal-encrusted Crocs.Not content with attempting to rehabilitate Crocs, Gvasalia, the man behind the uber-cool Vetements label, also transformed fringed sun umbrellas into skirts and shop awnings into trousers in his Paris show.This collection, however, was more slick than shocking, with very smart use of tartan in trousers, and tops and skirts often paired with chain straps taken from souvenir and duty free shops.Alterability too was built into several garments, with parts of the pants interchangeable like some modular tracksuits.
