Saigon Socialite - Heritage Art Shoes


The designers strives to instill modern ingenuity into ancient craftsmanship to pay homage to the resourceful collaboration that builds traditions. The Saigon Socialite collection is a collaboration across three villages - an orchard, pagoda carver and leather cobbler - in the Forbidden city of Hue, Vietnam. The 'reincarnated soles' require 18-25 days to conjoin scrap Persian lilac wood, with French leather-work and the time-honored craft of pagoda carving for a modern statement of art and fashion.
