Shoes for Gush

LOCO collection

Old age Mexican art often featured detailed motifs and an interesting use of colours. As with the original artwork, I wanted my designs for these Indian Mojris and loafers to stem from my fascination with the ancient patterns evolved from the wild flora and fauna.

Starting out, I explored with the whole face. I reduced it to graphic eye-catching motifs that still had a very traditional aesthetic.

The final pieces highlights the beauty of the animals: eyes of the jaguar, tail of the iguana and the nose of the bull. The foliage around these parts attempts to give an illusion of them peeking through the jungle.

Older works were juxtaposed with the use of a futuristic monochromatic colour scheme that gave a glow-in-the-dark look. A lighter colour would pop against a darker scheme.
