Julian Hakes Mojito Heels now in Production.
A few months ago, in a previous article, I mentioned my enthusiasm for the incredibly minimalistic Mojito High Heels by architect Julian Hakes.
According to a press release which was recently posted on Julian Hakes website, thousands of people worldwide (who apparently like appreciate minimalist design) showed their interest in this concept. As a result during the London Fashion Week that took place in September, the final version of the shoe was presented. It will become commercially available in summer 2011.
The final version of the shoe based on the same design principles as the original, but it is clearly improved aesthetically and anatomically, although I wonder whether the central piece will eventually be made of carbon fiber as in the original concept.
Mojito has accompanied catwalk creations from the collections of two emerging fashion talents: Swedish fashion designer Ann-Sofie Back and London based fashion designer Ada Zanditon. It was well received by the public and Julian Hakes stated that he is already in advanced negotiations with established manufacturers of luxury shoes in order to start production immediately.
