‘Project 2’ the second of our experimental projects to be released, has been a chance to step out of the traditional fashion season and push the boundaries of design. In the FINSK SS2010 collection the heel heights have been taken down, platforms lowered or removed, looking forward at completely directional but ultimately wearable design. ‘Project 2’ is therefore the total opposite, a fantasy shoe, a contrast to the main collection, an experiment of climbing even higher, to a new level in space. A ‘wedge-less
wedge’ has been created inspired by airplanes and the space and gravity between and around.
The project includes two colour ways and varying materials on the uppers. One uses a soft-touch grey nubuck leather with white gloss highlights and the second is a matt snake printed leather with highlights of metallic leather. This sits upon an exaggerated graphic wooden platform sliced with glossed colour at slashed angles to create an aerodynamic profile. Under the heel sits the beginnings of the wedge only to be sharply cut in to the sole leaving the wearer suspended in the air, defining gravity.
