Forgotten Path

Winde Rienstra

Collection Spring/Summer 2014

Winde Rienstra presented her ‘SS2014 collection A Forgotten Path’ collection during the Amsterdam Fashion Week 2013.

Inspired by the beauty of abandoned Russian dachas; wooden country houses which were known for their poetic structures with fine carvings and a large variety of shapes and proportions. Rienstra used the purity, wealth and serenity of these abandoned places to express the touching vulnerability of human enclosures. She portrayed those contrasts in a childlike playfulness, set-off against an armourlike stiffness.

Part of this collection are these striking shoes. Giant heels, made of plastic, gold metal screws and wooden balls on cords.
