I wanted to show you this brand since I found it some time ago. Mireia Playà is a vegan shoes brand designed in Barcelona and made in Alicante, an important area of shoe production in Spain. I liked also the summer collection, you still can buy some of these shoes on sales in the website. This brand has very unique shoes, some of them no for everybody but still interesting, you can find platforms, sporty soles and taupe synthetic fur.
In her blog Mireia explain what inspired the new collection:
“I started imagining how our lives would be on the day the Earth would start fighting against us, and how we’d adapt to a planet that suddenly has become hostile. I started imagining how we would have to dress, wearing clothes from past times and mixing them with anything that could protect us, a mixture that can also be seen in the shoes. That concept was the seed to start the design of the AW16 collection.
Elastic materials that change their color, wrinkled patent and velvet… a mix of textures and fabrics. Rubber platforms and sporty soles that keep our bodies far from the floor, pointy shoes as a defence system, elastic fabrics acting as a second skin… The collection is mostly black, a color that can also become bordeaux and grey, complemented by taupe that shows the need to camouflage, and with a soft pink that reflects the hope that humans are going to change before this becomes reality. “
I find pretty interesting to know how started the creative process and is a good way to understand better her job. I am going to show you a part of it, I hope you enjoy it!
What de you think about it? Would you try the platforms? I really like the cowboy boots.
