February 2020, Milan, the beginning of the Corona virus and I’m at the largest exhibition of shoe materials in the world.
Between the stress of being infected, and realizing that it will not be possible to move goods from here to home, I found this amazing square shoe last (which forms the shape of the shoe), fell in love with it and bought it straight from the display.
This period in time has brought us to a place where we have to learn to enjoy the here and now, the simple and the honest. So, it was important for me to design a shoe free of background noise which reminds me of this difficult phase. The precision in the shape of the last and the colors I have chosen make the heart happy. They are what make this simple shoe so beautiful.
