I had just come back into the big apple from a trip and it was my first night out, I felt inspired when I opened my shoe closet, and I said, why not wear out two different shoes form the same manufacturer?, same heel height but different styles, similar color, why not experiment? And as I went downtown to one of my favorite watering holes in the middle of chinatown I rocked them both till wee hours of the nite. So fun!
These Balenciaga Pre Fall 2007/8 shoes have an amazing construction. The front platform shape resembles a horses hoof, which since I am horse lover myself could not resist the temptation to have them. Made in Italy of course!
Last year thanks to the help of a good friend in the Italian Tuscan hills, I made a paper sketch turn into a real shoe under the label VALBLU. These shoes are inspired by the skies star constellations, they are asymmetrical, where the left and the right shoes are different but there is a common theme that runs through them, why not right? So fun!
