 Season to Seasons footwear is becoming hotter  & hotter, evolving into surrealist pieces of art for your feet. I recently came across Canadian footwear designer  ANASTASIA RADEVICH, with her Lost Civilizations collection pushing the envelope further and further with her inspiring designs below…

Graceful Walking

Polish artist Erwina Ziomkowska gives Ginger Rogers a run for her money.

  Using 4 ½ pounds of straight pins hammered into vintage shoes, we see the reflection of the relationship amongst shoes, pain, and beauty. Not your average Saturday night stilettos!

Kind of reminds me of the pin-sculpture toys of the 90’s 🙂

When the Old becomes New Again

17 Aug

One of the best places to look for inspiration is though vintage and antique pieces. The details and craftsmanship is beyond comparable to commercial products found today. Many vendors who shop the world display their finds at antique shows several times a year. These are a few of my favorites and photos from the showS.

The Brimfield Antique Show

One of the biggest flea markets in the world held 4 times a year in Massachusetts and over 21 fields of vendors.

Manhattan Vintage

Held in Chelsea at the Metropavillion with over 80 nation-wide vendors

Vintage Selection

Held at Stazione Leopoida and is one of the most prestigious fairs in Europe dedicated to vintage with over 40 vendors

Style Icon: Emanuel Limon

8 Jun
 About a month ago, I had the amazing opportunity to meet Emanuel Limon, visionary extraordinaire, expressing his ideas through design, art, and photography. Like a mash-up between Warhol and Rick Owens, Limon pushes the envelope with his reconstructed masterpieces. 
 

His sunglasses first caught my eye with futuristic shaping and mixed-media that I’ve never seen before. When asked where he got them, he understatedly said “I made them.” And I’m thinking: wow-where do you even begin with making sunglasses?!  

And it doesn’t end there, Limon also reconstructs and designs clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry and artwork stating,

“I push myself to do things I wouldn’t be comfortable doing in order to grow as a person.”
 
 
These are some of my favorite Emanuel Limon piece’s:
