“Bird-Witched”: Animal-inspired stilettos by Masaya Kushino

 

Juxtapoz:

Japanese shoe designer Masaya Kushino‘s latest collection, “Bird-Witched” is inspired by Jakuchu Ito, “a legendary painter who fourished uring the Edo period in the 18th century. He depicted real life animals such as birds, tigers, and elphants in a really ingenious way, tinged wit ha bit of insanity.”

As a lot of designers have stated elsewhere that shoes are attractive not only for putting legs in, but also as standalone art objects. In other words, shoes are just as visually stimulating as sculpture or any other three-dimensional art piece, but they also fundamentally have to be wearable. Artworks are basically made just for display or to be appreciated visually. When it comes to artistic pairs of shoes, however, they are more instinctive and more interactive, which I think is their most attractive trait.” – Masaya Kushino
