Boyarde Messenger created one-of-a-kind-shoes inspired by great masterpieces.

Designer Charlotte Olympia collaborated with artist Boyarde Messenger who is known for her extravagant and creative approach to body painting. During Art Basel Miami last year, Boyarde hand-painted 100 pairs of the Dolly platform pumps for the Neiman Marcus Charlotte Olympia project.

Each pair of shoes was an re-interpretation of a famous artwork from a 20th century artists, including Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, and Howard Hodgkin. Around 100 pairs were created.

The limited-edition shoes were sold at a private event during Art Basel Miami. Watch the video below to find about more information about the project.
