BA (Hons) Cordwainers Footwear: Product Design and Development

This collection is for A/W 2013-14 and it consists of 10 different styles. The collection is inspired from animal’s bone.


Concept
Humankind is at the top of the food chain. The moment that human beings climb up to the top of that pyramid, they act as if they are completed unrelated to the food chain pyramid. Human beings observe the animals in the natural state on TV, and watch the animals’ survival instinct as if they are surprised. Bones of the animals, sources of protein, that were thrown away leave behind animal form. It is not like the animals disappeared: Instead, they were merely dismantled. When the bones re-combine to formulate a new form to create yet another creation, I wonder whether they could instill life into something new instead of merely serving as the remnant of the food chain.

Combination of the dismantled bones. The concept that got started with the concept of new creations, sought to re-create the feel and shape by using diverse techniques.
