Award-winning conceptual shoe collection is designed by traditional methods, but creates deviant, abstract forms.

Now on display at the Shoe Galleries at Selfridges London, Pernilla is a conceptual shoe collection that is part footwear, part sculpture. The series of eight unusual silhouettes are crafted by traditional shoe making methods.

Designed by the Swiss-born, London-based fashion artist, Cat Potter, the designs are inspired by the wooden sculptures of Australian artist, Ricky Swallow.

A statement from Selfridges describes how:

The collection draws inspiration from the idea of continuous lines, which transpires as the heel of the shoes appearing to become part of the upper – evolving up and around the foot as twisted sculptural sections and straps.
