Some women like bags, some women like shoes. We're guessing architect Zaha Hadid is a shoe woman. Though she designed the Chanel Mobile Art exhibit — the Greatest Handbag Pavilion Known to Man opening in New York next week — she also collaborated with Brazilian label Melissa on a pair of rubber shoes. Her most recent fashion collaboration is with Lacoste, also on shoes. Lacoste previewed the spring 2009 footwear at the Frieze Art Fair in London. Since we obviously didn't make it to that, we asked Lacoste to send over images, and behold! Above you see a mockup of the shoe. (Images of the actual shoes haven't been made available yet.) Hadid started by digitizing the Lacoste crocodile logo and then used this "as a basis to explore a series of surfaces with repeated patterns," according to the press release. Hadid says in the release, "The design expression behind the collaboration with Lacoste footwear allows the evolution of dynamic fluid grids. When wrapped around the shape of a foot, these expand and contract to negotiate and adapt to the body ergonomically. In doing so a landscape emerges, undulating and radiating as it merges seamlessly with the body." Is it just us or do these shoes sound really comfortable? Click through for more images.
