It’s not a secret that the slip-on is a reaction to the world’s bleak headlines. Williams dedicated her show to “ditching technology” and connecting IRL with other humans. She made hoodies and track pants that blared Don’t know, don’t care to would-be staring dudes.

She built a mini-Stonehenge fortress on the runway and—like the Olsens at The Row—gave show goers crystals as protective parting gifts. Along with Alexa Chung and a bunch of fashion editors, London’s famously liberal (and first-ever Muslim) mayor Sadiq Khan sat front row.

Of course, not every fashion fiend wants to look down and see ANXIETY on their shoes―even if it is in super-sparkly caps. Luckily, Williams had a companion shoe with her original rhinestone motto, GIRLS.

Because if anything can reassure us about a better future, it’s all the women rising up to create it.
