Star Wars infused fashionFriday, 31 December 2010 by Ashley Turowsky
I was reading Susie Bubble’s blog the other day and found this incredible shoe designer, Raphael Young. Born in Seoul, Raphael’s footwear bold, futuristic, and definitely portrays the idea that beauty is pain.
The very Star Wars/ Star Trek AW 10 collection is made from stitch to finish by Raphael. He drew influence from heliocentric theory. "Most designers draw and then construct the shoe," he explains. "I sketch, build the shoe, and then take it apart again to create something new. Shoes are alive, nourished through material research and technological innovation."
The collection is made up mostly of black, black, and more black. Which works out perfectly for me, as I am looking for new black pumps
If the reference is too nerdy for you, just admire the gorgeous shoes!
Here are a few of my favourites! Which I will be pairing with my Black Crash Supernova Clutch!
And a few styles on the more eccentric side for your viewing pleasure.
