Finsk
This brand deserves a thread all its own. Julia Lundsten is a remarkable designer that is on the rise.

a little biography:
Quote:
Julia Lundsten is fast emerging as one of the most promising and talented shoe designers, with her label FINSK, launched in 2004. Finnish born Lundsten who has been dubbed the Eames of footwear, has established herself as a designer with a strong vision and unique, directional style.

Lundsten graduated from London’s Royal College of Art in 2003 and won the prestigious Manolo Blahnik Award two years running. ‘Exquisite, divine and perfect’ are just some of the words Blahnik has used to describe her shoes.

With an architect father and interior designer mother, Lundsten has cultivated an eye for design, clearly reflected in her work. Some of her biggest inspirations have derived from natural architecture, including buildings and furniture details as well as structures found in nature, such as on leaves and insect’s wings. Likening a shoe to that of a chair, Lundsten says the heel and sole are the chair legs, with the upper, the seat.

They can also be purchased at www.asos.com and Labour of Love London (or through Far Fetch.com) - both sites are having sales on at the moment the s/s 2009 range, although Amelie Boutique has been the cheapest place so far for s/s09 shoes, with very few sizes left!

These shoes remind me a lot of architecture. I think its the textures and colors used together. I really really like them

leyla, im with you on this point, this season is the most appealing. older seasons are interesting and distinct but dont have the panache that this season does.

S/S 2009 pink & blue wedges

- these are fairly narrow and I would say run half a size small. I got them in 37 ( I normally wear 36 - 36.5) and they fit me well.

Cannot wait to see photos of your boots - I know some ladies who have bought them, but have never posted photos...

The lady who I bought the shoes off of happens to work for Julia/Finsk in London, so she warned me that the shoes tend to run narrow. Hope it is not too much of a bother for you, and that you are able to enjoy them
