First pair designed by Chau Her Lee.
Sandals by Yarel Yair Design Studio.
And now, the hoof shoe craze, started by Iris Shieferstein!
Taken from Shieferstein’s website: “For many years, Iris Schieferstein has worked with dead animals as raw material for her pieces of art. She joins the fragments together to new creatures and thus gives a new face to death. No matter, if her arrangements follow paintings of the great masters of art or if the joined objects turn out to be whole words – her work always gives evidence of aesthetic intutition and her inclination to subtle enterntainment.The earlier you die – the longer you are dead.”
Interesting point of view, and I don’t like how dead animals are used, but if you think about it, we all wear shoes made from leather all the time – taken from dead animals brutally. So I guess this isn’t that bad after all.
By the way, Martin Margiela’s website is awesome and it’s NOT under construction!
And skeletal stilettos by dsquared2! I loved the entire series.
Last but not least, an interesting interactive shoe that works through an iPhone app, “SHORT ++” (or robotic elevator shoes), created by Adi Marom.
