the latest fall winter collection by the paris fashion house balenciaga features footwear that takes an
architectural approach, mixing block heels with a collage of materials. the collection was designed by
pierre hardy to match the high-tech materials of nicolas ghesquiere’s clothing designs. the shoes are made
from a full range of materials that includes leather, wood, plastic, metal and a few newer high tech
materials. the designs feature classic forms like the loafer and brogue, reinvented with the square heels
made from collaged bits of plastic that are reminiscent of memphis design. the front of the shoes also
have plastic elements tacked on underneath to raise them up. other designs even have slip-in style front
that take a design cue from water ski bindings.

  • taylor. IF the right industrial designer worked on these, these shoes could be very comfortable (as comfortable as heels can be)

  • has some nice elements. but all together… i donno…. less but better would have been nicer to look at. all i wanna do is like take certain elements off. but high five for attempt!

  • @Taylor “aesthetic” i think you mean

    but i’m on your side. beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you don’t have wear what you don’t want to. they’re different and i like them
