Tributo to Tom Binns


Tom Binns, the artist and jewellery designer, has redefined the world of Costume jewels and pioneered in the upcycled aesthetic I follow religiously. I am lucky enough to own a few of his pieces from the time they were being sold at the Dover Street Market in London. I could not resist the temptation to mix them all up as embellishments on a recycled upper. An upper coming from an unexpected place and perfectly sitting on the current athleisure trend madness: a Quechua sock from Decathlon. A knock on heel with handplaced rhinestones in a random order finishes the boot. The ephemeral result before recovering the jewels to be used again is worn by my wonderful sister.
