12 shoes for 12 lovers‘ by chilean-born, new york-based designer sebastian errazuriz reflects on the recollection of the artist’s personal and sexual relationships with former lovers, each of whom became the influence for a series of shoe sculptures. each day, errazuriz released one image of a new heeled design, completed by an accompanying photo of the footwear’s muse and a small, often explicit story about the duo’s escapades together. all nicknamed according to their distinctive idiosyncrasies, peculiarities, and character traits, the women and their narrative are materialized through each wearable. varying aesthetics define each lover’s design; ‘ice queen’ sophie — shoe number 5 — sees long, frosty glaciers hanging from its sole, while ‘jetsetter jessica’ — shoe number 8 — is a hot glossy red with an airplane fitted as a heel. ’12 shoes for 12 shoes’ will exhibit at the pop-up shop of brazilian shoe brand melissa from december 6th, 2013 to january 6th, 2014 for art basel miami beach 2013.
