Sketchual Heeling- ABCENSE Taiwan Fall '16 Shoe Sketches

ABCENSE Makes the Heart Grow Fonder





We spotted ABCENSE's architecturally inspired AW16 shoes and accessories collection at a recent Capsule Show in New York. To say it was love at first sight would be an understatement– metal accents, exaggerated details and supple leathers all combined to create unexpectedly versatile statement pieces. The Taiwan-based design duo behind ABCENSE found inspiration for this particular collection on a trip to Rotterdam, South Holland. The colors in the collection are a tribute to those seen when gazing upon the city at dusk. The geometric metal heels reflect the De Stijl style of art that became popular in Amsterdam in 1917.

When we later got eyes on a few sketches via the brand's latest look book, we simply had to share.

Pricepoints on shoes in their current collection tend to range from about $400-$600. Stay tuned for images of the collection as Fall 16 approaches.
