The Making Of “Summer Sandals for Piero Fornasetti”


The magical world of Italian designer and artist Piero Fornasetti has always been a huge inspiration for me. This is the reason why when a good friend of mine commisioned me to customize a pair of black sandals I did not hesitate to take his sea creatures as the starting point. Made in suede, the sandals feature two vamp straps that have been tweaked by adding off white lace trims and plenty of pendants and chains reminiscent of this under the sea universe, all in black and metallic hues. All materials are strictly RECYCLED or UPCYCLED from my grandmother’s haberdashery shop. Something that had been forgotten gets a new life to become this flirty summer style hommaging one of the greatest tastemakers of all time: Fornasetti.
