Best foot forward

If all my posts seem to look like one long trip down Memory lane, that's just because I don't have a camera at the moment, so I can't take pictures of my recent work... so here's some more old stuff !

I always loved embroidered slippers that aristocratic ladies would work as Christmas presents for their husbands, but I wanted to do something a bit less stuffy, so I mutilated a worn-out pair of trainers (Adidas Gazelle as I am sure you will have noticed), and scanned them to convert into an embroidery pattern. They were rather expensive to have made up, but then again, I went to the best bespoke shoemaker I could find, George Cleverly in the Royal Arcade.
And no, I don't actually wear them.


  1. Genius! Idea, execution, endresult.
    Especially that you used worn-out trainers, that adds new layers of meaning. Truely a work of art!
    Combined with technical skill and functionality it makes it my favourite kind of art. Great colour too. Great colour variations.
    Really wonderful :)

  2. funny shoes!!
    love your socks!
