Art and shoes

I love art and the combination of art and shoes in a fashion brand's new season lookbook, or celebratory publication production, is always a fascinating experience. Imelda recently commented on the Onpedder new season e-zine. Their spring summer 08 zine is all things fabulous.

Fabulous photography that heralds a commercial quality that transcends fashion and becomes pure art. The reference to animals with the quality of the imagery is just breathtaking. It's architectural, relevant and timeless.

Some of my favourite images from the zine...

Chloe


Alexander McQueen


Rodarte



Thomas Wylde(L) and Undercover (R)


Miu Miu


Reminds me a lot of the Prada new season lookbooks, produced by Rem and Jerome Koolhaas, with the superimposed photography and references to themes. This zine for On Pedder done by WORK and CLANG. The Art Direction done by WORK is absolutely breathtaking. WORK is based in Singapore and works on many graphic design projects. An interview with Theseus Chan, the founder of WORK can be found here.
