Kobi Levi has turned his attention to birds for his latest footwear collection. For fall/winter 2012-13, the designer takes inspiration from the flamingo, ostrich and stork to create a unique range of shoes that encompass the common silhouette between the three.
The birdy silhouette leans strongly on a specially designed and crafted stiletto heel, which combines the familiar stiletto shape with the thin bird legs. Each bird is represented by simply altering the color scheme.
The flamingo upper is made from pink glossy leather, which mimics it’s wet and slippery body. The ostrich upper is uniquely made from black rugged leather, which was chosen to resemble its bulky feathers. While a clear white leather was chosen for the stork, to maintain its majestic look and contrast with its shiny orange beak.
Each one of the three designs will be hand-made per order in limited editions of 20 pairs only per design. They are available in Euro sizes 36-42 from the brand website – www.kobilevidesign.com
