Shoe collaboration X United Nude & Sarah Angold

We had the opportunity to work to the incredible Sarah Angold to help her design and develop a sculptural concept shoe for United Nude.
Here is our design journey from concept to final piece showcased at London Fashion SS16.

We started off by creating paper models around out shoe in the Anisha Parmar London Studio, as well as doing wood bending test to see how this would translate into material.

The wood shoe structure  was handmade with a special wood that is bent using dry heat, this was then spray painted to fade into the wood grain and initially showcased the the 're-inventing shoes' exhibition at the United Nude London flagship store.
