INSPIRED: TACTILE APPEAL

w 18 inspo-01.jpg

For fall I was interested in exploring texture and how it adds another dimension to color, transforming something ordinary into something unexpected and statement-making. I looked at still-life oil paintings by Dutch masters (even the weird ones) with their rich jewel tones & light-and-dark contrasts that almost pop out of the canvas. I also took inspiration from the odd and wonderful velvet mobiles of Hanne Friis which sculpt fabric into other-wordly forms. Lastly, I looked at other design objects that were elevated through the simple use of shearling in neutral tones. I really wanted to engage your sense of touch with this collection and make the shoes feel special, but also versatile enough for everyday! Each style is basically a guaranteed hit of dopamine every time you gaze at your feet :)
