Minna Parikka: Shoes From A Dream

It’s always interesting to watch a major fashion trend penetrating into the work of different designers. You never know

whether all of them suddenly woke up with the same exact idea or they just follow the market needs for the sake of commercial success. It seems that Minna Parikka, a shoe designer from Finland, once had the same dream as Riccardo Tisci and Nicolas Ghesquiere, coming out with the design for a pretty pair of wooden platform and Plexiglass heel shoes, not really typical for the brand at all but looking fresh and outstanding. This new direction is for sure a step up for the brand, which completely changed the whole Minna Parikka universe. Hopefully, there will be more nice Minna Parikka fashion toys like these to play with.
