Geology of Shoes by Barbora Veselá
You will find no shoes like this in the nearby shop. Barbora Veselá challenges herself to make the most of the leather leftovers and creates one of a kind patterned footwear. Afret graudating from London College of Fashion, she decided to focus on bringing her own vision to life. Combining classic shoe making techniques with uncommon treatment of materials resulted in this stunning collection - Geology of Shoes. Layering and sanding down the straps of suede was inspired by eroded rocks and geological maps. Take a look at the video to see the process.
"Project is taking inspiration from sediment layers and from effects of erosive processes in nature as well as from traditional shoe making techniques. Special construction method has been developed and used across the collection. Multiple layers of leather scrap pieces are added on the last and subsequently sanded down to achieve the final shape and unique colour pattern of the shoe. Colour scheme is influenced by old geological maps."
