“Chiara Ferragni rehabilitates the Germans: rubber slippers and white socks. The Germans can no longer be fooled. Too bad, the teasing of the Germans with white socks has increased the self-esteem of generations of Italians Smiley with glasses alone (#sischerza) “. Anna Paola Concia’s comment is just one of the many that have been unleashed since the queen of social media Chiara Ferragni published her photos around the city, wearing short white socks and brown sandal-like slippers with open toes . So much so that the influencer flew into trend on Twitter. The irony runs on the web and the comparisons with the German cousins, creators of the ‘sandal-sock’ style, flock: “Ferragni line up. You have not invented anything, the Germans are before you”, writes a Roman internet user. “If he starts eating potatoes, that’s it!” Observes another. “Chiara Ferragni throws her slippers for the modest sum of 175 euros. My mother threw them for me for free”, tweets another one. “La Ferragni – writes a girl – could impose any trend, and which one would I choose? Slippers with socks. This summer we will not be able to distinguish German tourists from natives. Lord, pity”.
