Bridge&skeleton shoe project. Slow but confident     

In my spare time, in my "leisure time", I do not read, I don't  walk, I do not watch TV, Ii continues my work on a project where I was experimenting with the possibilities of the leather in shoe design.
Time passes quickly, I can feel it in a  physical way. Anything that  I put off for tomorrow, at best, will be done next week. That is why my project is moving so slowly. But recently, my daughter start going to kinder garden , I finally decided on this and I get a little more time, so I made another sandal in the "skeletons" series.  I called it "a bridge", as originally  I was inspired  to create them thanks to  Santiago Calatrava bridges. Sandals are constructed from the shoe sole and sliding to the upper of the shoe .It is the basis for the rubber cords that wrapped around the leg. 


For a more complete understanding once again here is my first model of sandals. 


Thinking about the future development of the idea, where the sole -is the basic, or even, the main element of the design, I can see only the images and the shape of those shoes. Its exact design I'll get when I start working with the sole, and has its form and function dictate to me the whole design of the shoe.
This is like working with the fabric on a mannequin, soft tissue, structure and flexibility dictate fashion designer the look of the dress. This  is the magic of the creation, for me, when you merge with the idea and only it directs you. At that moment ,there is no ambition, no selfishness, no vain pursuit of commercial success. So I just love working on non commercial projects, where I don't lead by the thought of the sale, but only the desire to recreate the right idea, like a fire burning inside of me. I'll finish this post with a  trite phrase, but a correct one.
Don't  put off for tomorrow what you can do today.
