Wood footwear in a new way
If you thought that it is already heavy to designers of footwear to surprise you with something new, you precisely were mistaken. In – 1-x, demand on "brand new" is not miniaturized in any way – as an example the Lady the Eider can serve it at least, in – 2-x, the offer too in any way does not long to lag behind demand, both eminent design institutes and colleges let out new talents of times a year. And what it is necessary to provide to these graduates? Correctly, final/degree projects!
All is tried: materials vary from plastic and a tree to metal and paper, a form remind the future twirled by a spiral or powerful wood cubes, in work different tools which we did not guess at all are used… And here the most picturesque, unusual and being remembered collections escape in the big world, without being limited to hall walls on reception of examinations and protection of diplomas.
Example? Please! Cat Potter (Cat Potter), the graduate of Central St Martins and London College of Fashion (Cordwainer institute), in time to be taken not only theoretical luggage of knowledge, well and practical experience – behind her shoulders work in the shoe industry (Rupert Sanderson, Rosa Fior, Esska) and areas of sales of luxury jewels. Yes, this lady already knows firsthand about design process, PR subtleties, features of sales, research of the market and many other. It is obvious that such vigorous person could not create something sour and gray for own final project – and as it appeared, Cat did not bring our expectations!
By its own recognition, Cat «became interested in potential of ordinary methods of design in a combination to other materials for production of footwear, and not just its ornament». The lady used simply available and not in particular expensive material – in her case it there was a wood which at the same time is ordinary "forefather" of the shoe industry.
Milling machines changed themselves the sewing machine that allowed to be released from ordinary shoe a component – insoles, heels, backs, edgings, союзок both the rest, and the rest. Introduction of modern technologies, 3D-modeling and a quite good zaniye of anatomy in a combination to the rich imagination allowed Cat to make really an unusual collection.
