Lacoste will launch a new range of Zaha Hadid-designed footwear in September
Initially previewed in October 2008 at the Frieze Art Fair in London, the final design prototype will soon go into production.
‘The design expression behind the collaboration with Lacoste footwear allows the evolution of dynamic fluid grids,’ said Hadid. ‘When wrapped around the shape of a foot, these expand and contract to negotiate and adapt to the body ergonomically. In doing so a landscape emerges, undulating and radiating as it merges seamlessly with the body.’
A limited edition of just 850 pairs will be made.
