ANDREIACHAVES

In this series Chaves’ explores the concept of movement as she pushes craftsmanship to realise a sculptural aesthetic, where material and geometry are integral to the shoe design. The result is fluid structures, that involve the foot, and create a modern and unique effect. ‘Goldsculpt’, which is available in three different models is completely handmade in Italy (for the leather work) and Ireland (for the gold structures). Shoes are made in goat leather or lambskin and all of the structures are 24K gold plated.
