Animation Shoes

Finsk shoes inspired by the colours of Studio Ghibli and the Moomins by Tove Jansson aka my childhood companion VHS staples?!?  Can we say gagging for it all together.  What makes it even better is that these shoes are part of Finsk‚Äôs new collaboration with Faith which will be available in April.  I‚Äôve been a little iffy with their past collaborations with the likes of Olivia Morris  and Gil Carvalho as I‚Äôve liked some designs but loathed others.  These however get a double yes from me even if I didn‚Äôt know Julia Lundsten also is a fan of Studio Ghibli.  She has also taken architectural shapes from Alvar Aalto and Eero Saarinen in truly traditional Finsk fashion and applied them to these shoes for Faith.   The colours and moods definitely remind me of those aforementioned refreshingly organic and untainted animation. 

Judging from these preview images of Finsk‚Äôs AW08 collection ‚ÄòLucid Dreams‚Äô, the Faith collaboration seems like an even more bargainous buy as the two collections are not aesthetically speaking miles apart.   Of course we are talking superior and more unique materials such as nubuck and tumbled metallic leather with that same combination of textures and architectural shapes that I last observed

Still, seeing as designer-high street collaborations in shoes have yet to reach the stages of fruition that the clothes have, I‚Äôll be looking forward to these offerings from Faith.

  1. I love and want them all very much indeed. The heels are splendid. Unfortunately i don’t reckon any shops near me will be seeing these wonders. A girl can dream…

  3. ooh, the moomins, I loved them. I love the colours of these, so slumber-inducing and soothing and perfectly spring-like. I hope they have these online, if not in my local branch.

  4. i definitely like the fact that they’re made from unique materials, it just gives that bit of an extra speciality. you know those black and yellow ones in the middle of the first pic, i saw some very similiar ones at NIne West…

  5. those silver booties are fantastical. i’m going to go on a hunt for some that look like them…. one can never have enough silver boots of any sort, really…

  6. Oh wow, oh wow! I’ve been a fan of FINSK shoes, but haven’t found a way to reason a pair into my budget. . . Do you think this collaboration with Faith will be reasonably priced, or at least less than the typical FINSK designs?

  7. Beautiful!
    I’m loving the first and forth especially – perfect spring/summer shoes and I love how they’re doing the neon brights with neutrals thing.
    Any ideas when they’re in the shops?

  8. Studio Ghibli? Those words alone would have set me off, but the shoes are lovely in their own right- the yellow-and-blue pair are particularly covetable..

  9. I’m so overcome with desire…the yellow and blue shoes are perfect. Does anyone know how Faith shoes run, and whether their UK size 4’s convert neatly into a US 6.5? I’m seriously buggin’ for these!
