Every few years, Lucite experiences something of a resurgence. Judging by June alone, we’re in the midst of something of a plastic renaissance right now. That’s the month that Rihanna included a number of shoes with Lucite block heels in her most recent <a href="https://www.manoloblahnik.com/us/pages/rihannaxmanolo&quot;&gt;collaboration with Manolo Blahnik</a>. The same month, boutique owner and designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh and jewelry designer Sophie Buhai chose to focus <a href="https://mnzstore.com/products/paris-oxford-lucite-heel-satin-sophie-buhai-x-mnz-maryam-nassir-zadeh-fw17&quot;&gt;their first accessories collaboration</a> around the material. As <a href="https://www.vogue.com/article/maryam-nassir-zadeh-sophie-buhai-collaboration-lucite-accessories-fall-2017-paris-fashion-week-party&quot;&gt;Vogue&lt;/a> wrote in June, “The result is a small capsule of Lucite accessories for Fall 2017 including thick hoop earrings, a clear-buckled belt, and transparent-heeled oxfords—items described by Buhai as ’30s/’40s meets postmodern.’” Lucite is cheap, versatile and feather-light, though its clarity offers a couture appeal, and the material has a long past bolstering its timelessness.
