6th October: Oceedee, an accessible luxury shoe brand collaborated with Rahul Mishra’s Spring Summer 2017 collection at the Paris Fashion Week. Rahul Mishra’s Spring Summer 2017 meanders into THE RAINFOREST to unravel new stories for the season which also formed the inspiration to create the shoes.
Oceedee created a variation of leather shoes which included checkered designs, 3D embroideries, and rainforest themed embroidery. The naïve child like perspective of Henri Rousseau’s art form the inspiration for the embroideries on the shoes while the checkered designs give a contrast to the clothes. In Henri’s art, we see a flower petal metamorphoses into a swan; the leaves into a zebra; flock of birds emerge from the leaves reflecting magical mirroresque impressions. Traditional artisans bring to life 3D embroidery techniques on natural textiles like cotton voile and organdy inspired by Rousseau’s artworks which are then transferred on to the leather shoes.
Oceedee has previously collaborated with Rahul Mishra for India Couture Week and designers such as P.E.L.L.A, Kanika Goyal Label and Garo for Lakme Fashion Week.
