Shoe designer Paul Andrew sure knows his stuff when it comes to art and design references. In a collection that celebrates his five years in business, the gardens of Morocco, the arches of Di Chirico and the fluorescence of Dan Flavin offered plenty of fodder for a great outing, and that was just the set design at his Ramscale Loft presentation space.
But the designer said there was more afoot (all puns intended) for Spring 2018. As his irresistibly sexy and cool shoes have secured some solid retail styles, for this presentation, he wanted to focus on shoes that aren’t in everyone’s closet. “The market is so saturated with product. I want to give them something they don’t have. These are shoes of desire–objects of art.”
