There are a huge variety of fashionable accessories. Out of all of them, shoes have a strong potential to become objects of fetish. They are close to the wearer and the ground, they follow you around and are recognised as objects that express your identity.

This project aims to express various elements of someone’s identity through the improvisation and ad-hoc assembly of various elements. The objects are collages of seemingly unrelated parts and due to their unusual merging create a magical character.

Each pair produces a different collision. The first pair contains parts of a classical leather shoe and other more casual elements that are not attached in a conventional manner. The second one imitates prints and broken glass and is assembled randomly with found objects.
