Categories: Art, Fashion, My Wish List | Comments Off on Shoes part 2: Origami shoes part 2

These weird and brilliant creations were the result of a collaboration between Melissa, who make gorgeous rubber shoes (I myself own the red peep toe flats with Tinkerbell print in black), and Gaetano Pesce, an Italian architect and designer.

The designer fashion label Boudicca has a revolutionary new perfume called Wode. The magic about this new perfume, is that it sprays on blue and then turns invisible!   The bottle alone is enough to make it a coveted cult fashion accessory, and it also shows the inspiration for both the perfume’s title and colour […]
