SHOE PORN THURSDAY

Aperlai

Aperlai is a shoe brand originating from Paris that I first found out about from Fashionising.com, on a post called: “Shoes As Art: Aperlai”, and, naturally, I was intrigued.  After checking out their website, I definitely agreed with the statement.  The shoes are inspired by artists such Picasso, Mondrian and Pollock, and it is truly evident in the designs and patterns.  The designer, Alessandra Lanvin, uses design elements to create shoes that are as unique as the person wearing them.  Check out the rest of their Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection here.
