Chau Down This

Chau Down This

>> I was waiting out on posting on Chau Har Lee just because I was thinking that once her own domain name was set up, perhaps her own proper line is being established and that she won't JUST be remembered for her structural RCA graduate collection.  Her graduate collection along with a few new styles were on display before the Fashion East show started down in the vaults at Somerset House and I'm hoping the wooden styles in particular will make it to some shop floor or another. Structural shoes that are merely editorial props are a painful affair, which is why I got extra happy when Atalanta Weller had ventured into retailable shoes. Me thinks that Chau Har Lee has a slightly easier task on her hand transferring her sculptural, laser-cut visions into functional shoes because that was her intention from the very beginning when she embarked on her graduate collection. So please, less on the "OMG, this is ART!" comments, seeing as we're encouraging Chau Har Lee to venture into shoes that are more than just plinth decorations.

    Mmm Hmm right you are. Well the last two (and possibly three) defiantly fit into the wearable category. The metal heels are divine. The magnificent creation in the first photo can only be described as a work of art though – sorry Susie!

    Amazing and beautiful. I’d suffer blisters, blood and pain for these – fantastic and so visionary. Beautiful! Beautiful! It would be a shame to turn them into something more wearable!

    I actually think these could be really functional. Like many of them I would wear without any alteration for like “everyday use” they’re amazing! I especially love the 4th, 6th and 10th shoes. sooo original. (i hope she sells them!!!)
