Season_03. "Requiem Papillons" Sandals ! by Min Heo

 

Hello, readers of Blog Pleiades :)

I am excited to introduce you our Season_03. “Requiem Papillons”.

The season’s concept started from prayers for the loved ones, requiem, memories and souls.


I did some research about Korean traditional mourning ceremonies too - featuring a lot of ‘white’ colour, white fabric, flowers, clothes, paper …


Butterflies, the designer’s longtime loved subject, are also explored.

The motifs are drawn onto lasts by the designer herself, transforming into beautiful pairs of sandals.
