Paper cuts

martin margiela paper pants and shoes
picture 1, 3 by jill
picture 2 by shini

So finally a shot of the shoes I gave you a sneak peek of while back! made out of paper by the designers of martin margiela indeed. they are so beautiful, especially worn with matching pants, right? I wore them on the last day at fashion week, and am amazed how I managed to keep them white despite from all the coffee consumed... I was told the paper is meant to wear out with time, the pants can be washed and the shoes are leather underneath so any wear would be part of the character.. love the idea but I don't know if I will ever dare to do that...

The shoes will now go up on my shelf, I allowed myself to get them as I decided to categorize them as decoration.. I mean waaaay more multifunctional than a painting!

Thank you to jill from streetstyle london and shini from park and cube for the photos, I hope to see you guys again soon!

en tykkää kengistä tai housuista ja se on despite eikä despise joka on halveksua. olipas negatiivinen kommentti, mutta mahtava blogi muuten!

Oh Sandra it was an absolute delight to meet you, too. Once we're all caught up - in the next few weeks - let's get together with Shini if you have time.

It's funny: I happen to keep favourite shoes on shelves, too: as sculpture, as art. My husband thought it was cute before we got married, now it's not so cute. He said it's like living in a shoe store. I currently have a pair of pale turquoise suede wedge sandals hanging off a really cool painting he did in the living room.

Your blog is amazing. I've culled my blog roll but you've survived the cull lucky you. xox

fashionsdirtylaundry said...

Yes Yes Yes! Amazing, Sandra!

insideijustdied said...

I almost bought these a few weeks ago, and hesitated, now I'm not so certain I made the right decision. These look especially lovely paired with the paper pants. Amazing duo, kudos.

Eva Schön said...

Very bold, innovative & eccentric! Loving this unconventional idea! What an extavagant work of art! Would wear it any time! Well done to designers!

Julianna Wong said...

I cant believe you have the shoes AND the pants!
I have the MMM paper dress in white.
It's incredible how MMM can make white paper clothes than can be wash and that are fabulous yet wearable.

Amalina said...

How are you even able to wash the pants??? I would really love to see them in real life and to touch them...I can't fathom what they feel like. Do they really feel like paper??? So many questions running through my mind right now.....
