Accidental Icon Loves Black Boots: The Stylistic Innovation and Craftsmanship of The Last Conspiracy
I like nothing better than a beautiful pair of handcrafted black boots to serve as the foundation for constructing my looks. When one favors the designs of Yohji Yamamoto and CDG as I do, shoes and boots must be modern yet comfortable and imbued with a sense of history. I am pleased to introduce you to The Last Conspiracy, a brand I discovered, led by Creative Director Roald Nore. Guiding principles of the designer are, "looking back for craftsmanship and looking forward for creativity."
THE LAST CONSPIRACY develops unique, comfortable and hand-made footwear. According to the website, "each collection is built on the premises of experimental progress, allowing for new treatments and construction processes." Authentic shoemakers first and design studio second, the brand brings together two countries: Denmark, where the design process is inspired by the clean Scandinavian aesthetic, and Portugal, the world's top hand-made shoe producer. In today's post I share with you photographs detailing the process of design and creation shot on location in Atelier of The Last Conspiracy in Porto, Portugal. The photographer is Lisbeth Breland Saalmink.
