Based on the "Clouded" piece of music of Recondite, we created a nine-pair shoe collection. The collection will act as a firebrand to ECCO. Based on the feelings in the piece of music we found it important to emphasize the words: Sharp, Edged, Glossy, Artificial, Heavy, Contrast, Fine, and Bastard. Similarly, we started our process of creating a moodboard based on these feelings to approach a common and more tangible understanding of the feel of the music. Based on this visualized feeling, we then outlined shoe and sketch details and performed sewing and material samples, including structure, surface, grip and color. Together, we examined our sketches and models and selected together you wild and mild shoes that should be the starting point for the final collection. The nine shoe was then processed and adapted and rewritten. Inspired by ECCO's interest in soles that we experienced during the business visit, all nine shoes are designed with different soles.
