From Yeezys to Margiela Tabis, we’re charting the greatest memes to ever walk the runway
Meet the Internet’s most popular and meme-able fashion moments, from runway styles to essentials that have dedicated Instagram pages.
Maison Margiela Tabis: The two-toed shoes inspired by Japanese footwear are one of the most meme-able styles solely because of their design. Photos surface all over the Internet of Tabi owners posting photos of them holding their keys with the infamous toe, and their collections of the coveted shoe. With pages on Instagram and TikTok everywhere, these cult-favorite boots have made collaborations with Dover Street Market and Reebok, the split toe shoes can be spotted on any fashion aficionado and fashion meme page alike.

Jacquemus Le Chiquito: This itty-bitty bag was released in 2019, and is only two inches wide, spurring Internet discourse of the small handbag. Currently, in larger sizes, this comically small bag instantly became a meme when Twitter discussed what they could fit in the bag, users usually poking fun at its size.

Viktor and Rolf Spring/Summer 2019: Taking on meme culture head-on, Viktor and Rolf’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection is full of meme-worthy content, with dresses embossed with large text. “I am my own muse” and “no photos please” sprawl the dresses, which was all over Twitter and Instagram with commentary on the Met Gala 2019 theme, camp.

Chanel’s Ankle Bags Inspired by Lindsay Lohan’s Ankle Monitor: In 2007, Lindsay Lohan tweeted, “can CHANEL please help me out by getting me some stickers to put on my scram bracelet so that i can at least wear a chic dress?!” where Chanel responded with the iconic ankle bag, a three-inch bag that wraps around the ankle and is designed to nestle right above a shoe. The ankle bag is inspired by Lohan’s SCRAM monitor, which detected alcohol intake while she was in rehab. In a classic Lindsay Lohan moment, this tweet surfaced all over the Internet and is still a coveted piece today.

Yeezy Slides: The rapper’s famous shoes have made a pair of slides that were compared to gummy sharks, Crocs, and Play-Doh. Ironic that Yeezy has also made a collab with Crocs, Twitter users have commented on the slides and their ridiculous design and color.

Balenciaga Crocs and Toed Shoes: Balenciaga, known for their sock-like sneakers, have taken their innovation too far with their Crocs collab, consisting of heeled Crocs and Croc boots.
