Some of you may have seen me mention it on my facebook page alreay, but here is a better look at the BUNTE new faces award winner in the category shoe design. I think awards that help to promote young designers are always a great initiative and I would love to hear what you guys think about this shoe, designed by Simon Barth from Berlin.
I can’t help but think of snowflakes and christmas parties whenever I see the shoe :) Do you guys like the crystals on the front and back? Let me know what you think!
Not only did the winner receive 5.000€ in prize-money, but RENO will also be producing the shoe and selling it in selected stores, starting November 22nd. Will any of you (german/austrian readers) be heading out to buy yourself a pair? I can’t wait to see how the final shoe turned out … it must be amazing to see something you designed come to life and be sold in real stores!
For those that didn’t see the video on Facebook, here is a short clip about the award that took place in July:
PS. I know I have been somewhat m.i.a. from the blog this past week … I have an important exam tomorrow morning and have been spending my days at the library. But hopefully I’ll have a post with some of my recent “library looks” for you later today and Sunday’s Cravings will be up tomorrow after I finish the exam :)
