Paris fashion house Balenciaga’s latest collection of footwear takes quite the architectural turn, mixing block heels with a collage of materials.
Designed by Pierre Hardy to mimic the high-tech materials of Nicolas Ghesquiere's ready to wear collection, the shoes are made from a collage of materials that includes; leather, wood, plastic, metal & a sprinkling of newer high-tech materials.
Another designer touting classic designs like the loafer & the brogue, with a contemporary reinvention of square heels, the platform is created by plastic moulds constructed underneath the shoe.
Gloriously over-the-top. Love!
