SHOES | Pointed
Acne, Alexander Wang, Theyskens' Theory
A surreal shape with a benden heel, a shoe with a rabbit fur tail, 10cm wedges in ombre burgundy suede that fades into patent leather. Are you serious? Yes they are seriously breathtaking pieces of craftmanship.
I love the story behind the design of the Acne heels. They are inspired by 1980's kitten heels. Imagine stretching out an image, like when you're enlarging an image in photoshop and it goes wrong, you get an elongated misshaped figure. Imagine stretching out a 1980's kitten heeled pump, this is what you'll get.
