The concept of the commonly structured footwear has, in its own right, demolished its former design concepts and has since rebirthed its purpose and aesthetic functions into an improved elegant platform, which consist of redefined basic design principles.
French architect Jean Nouvel designed a product line of au courant and innovative footwork, built on the structured idea of the newly-established principles of design, for the Italian shoe brand Ruco Line—which has since been unveiled at the Interni Hybrid Architecture and Design exhibition in Milan.
According to Jean Nouvel (via Dezeen), Jean Nouvel’s Pure Footwear “reduces the concept of a shoe to its purest form”. The boots, which are made from rubber, each contain an abbreviated name of the design-along with a serial number- located on the upper corner of the shoe making each pair unique. The boots’ color variations are white, black, fluorescent yellow and fuchsia.

The enchanting VOGUE photographs, shot by Mario Testino, of Carey Mulligan portraying her movie role as the iconic Daisy Buchanan in the anticipated novel-turned-film, The Great Gatsby, for the magazine’s May issue.
Was I cast upon an infatuation spell with the Fall/Winter 2013 collection of Maki Oh? The answer is yes! The label’s debuted collection abundantly capacitated enriching heritage and technique methods of production for each garment. The Nigeria-based label incorporated cultural woven techniques, traditional prints and patterns, triumphant and bold hues, and distinguished fabrics that executed the casualty and elegancy for each of the collection’s embodiments.
The brand’s indifferent prints strategically collaborate with one another, successfully overcoming the ultimate difficult task of clashed prints—the trickiest trend of the season.
The collection entails figure-hugging, asymmetrically hemmed A-lined dresses with elaborate, yet hidden, brocade stitching that stays true to the African print culture.
A velour coordination outfit, entailing a high-waisted skirt and boxed crop top, push the boundaries of the modern fabric norms and integrate the retro ‘eighties fabric perspective with its applied development.
Maki Oh. An all-around beautiful, story-telling collection that inhabits the true form of cultural expression.

Jo Nagasaka, of Schemata Architecture, created a “concrete” fashion boutique space for Japanese fashion brand EEL. Once an office space, the designing process of the boutique involved “stripping away” much of the space’s essential layers to expose the surrounding concrete block walls and bare flooring to produce a cool, abandoned warehouse-like aesthetic.
Bookshelves and large boxes are utilized as the displaying areas for the folded garments, while the hanging merchandise is showcased by wielded stainless-steel racks or cables anchored across the ceiling.
In my opinion: there should be a lot more retailers commissioning architects to produce inimitable designs for their retail space. Many spaces feature the same entities, aesthetics, and available aspects that, unfortunately, it sets an expectancy of generic and conformed criterion upon apparel space design—where creativity should, nonetheless, be a limitless force.
I love the “barely there” interior produced by the architecture team, which sets the garments from blending with the space. The merchandise variety (one style and one size) on the selling floor inhabits exclusivity for consumers—“no one other person will be seen with this on-trend, chambray button-up shirt,” thought she (or he), upon examining the prospective purchase.
