Invisible Shoes – Andreia Chaves Incredible Concepts

{YBA} What a new, amazing, ideal and incredible concept of Andreia Chaves, a young Brazilian footwear designer by using a triangle of math and statistics in fashion syllabus giving a subject of Invisible Shoes.

She always delivered an individual work of art in the prism of shoe spectrum. A birth in the busy metropolis of Sao Paulo, Brazil named Miss Andreia Chaves, knows that beauty can be found in chaos, a concept that reveals itself in her footwear designs. Her powerful philosophy is,

“The fact that I grew up in a chaotic city like Sao Paulo, full of contrasts, being in contact with such diversity and constant exposure to different visual inputs, has inspired me in how I think and conceptualize my shoes. Looking at my work, I can clearly see influence coming from my South American sense of versatility.  Also in the mix – what I have been experiencing in Europe”

As a result of  inspiration concepts, chaos and structure of her city, she has designed a pair of barely there invisible shoes. So you can understand that invisible shoes actually means a pair of bonkers booties made from mirrors.

The “Invisible Shoe”  is an asymmetrically mirrored low-cut boot, creating a deceptively obscured optical effect with every step taken. This boots make the color of the world a part of your wardrobe.

“The Prism Shoe” is a fascinating structural design that by itself looks like an intricate work of origami – casting beautiful kaleidoscopic shadows against the ground.  Here we can clearly see Chaves’ chaotic – yet orderly – paradox coming to life through her shoe designs, resulting in dramatic silhouette.

The “Form & Texture Shoe” exhibits a disciplined study of form and material while keeping just enough chaos to stay interesting.  The contradiction here is the seemingly indestructible framework fused with the disorderly arranged leather and sycamore wood cubes.  The contours create a theatrical statement nothing short of impressive.

With influences such as Maison Martin Margiela, Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake., it’s clear that Chaves  appreciates designers who provoke – and shatter – common perceptions that people hold.  Chaves is currently focusing on her final collection.
