If you like shoes with sharp styling distinctive architectural design you should definitely have a look at Finsk shoes by Finish designer Julia Lundsten.
Lundsten is based in London. With an architect father and interior designer mother, she has cultivated from a young age an eye for geometry and architectural design. A quality clearly reflected in her work. Some of her biggest inspirations have derived from architecture, including buildings and furniture details as well as structures found in nature.
We particularly like the fact that her designs have superb details which are structural components of the shoe, rather than add-on elements. All models from the Finsk collection are characterized by an amazing sense of movement and a very dynamic contemporary style. Frinsk shoes seem to be the perfect match for the confident, independent modern woman.
Frinsk’s unique, modern designs are avant-garde yet supremely wearable. Most designs make clever use of contrasting materials for an impressive visual effect. Also worth noting is that their production process is environmentally friendly. All shoes are strictly handcrafted in Brazil from locally sourced materials. Moreover the raw materials used are by-products of other industries, thus conserving our valuable natural resources.
