Today's topic: Chau Har Lee's new footwear line. Lee is the footwear designer for Bally by day, and shoe-making mastermind by night. It is the designers like her that completely take my breath away. This is what I love about the fashion world. I may not get excited by the artwork on the wall, but I do get excited by the artwork you can wear! Getting inspiration from jewelery and architecture, she has taken the meaning of shoes to a whole new level. From the bright orange transparent wedge to the black chunky stiletto, her shoes truly are a work of art.
I remember being in Italy a few years ago and going to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum, I think it was in Florence, and looking at all the beautiful and, in some cases, outrageous shoes he designed, like the multi-colored melting shoe. It's amazing how these artists create masterpieces that are not just pieces that hang on the wall; it is artwork that people can wear.
