frank gehry designs women's boots
‘you shouldn’t have to differentiate between disciplines, shoes are very architectural and always have been, and even more recently there are new shoes…(that are) buildings.‘ – FG
‘architects create brand names now, it’s useful to commercial industry to associate with those names in the same way they do with movie stars. purists out there probably find the idea of my designing a shoe abhorrent, but I don’t know why. we’re going back to the renaissance model, in which artists could work in any discipline.‘ – FG
mr. gehry was among five artists, invited by the french shoemaker J.M. weston: dior homme creative director kris van assche, shoe designer michel perry, industrial designer martin szekely and gallerist clemence krzentowski.
