Beloved Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair seems to be always on the run. The guerilla store arose out of the collaboration with GUISE, one of the most interesting design offices in Sweden these days. Seems as if the side-by-side of architecture and fashion-design offers space for new experiments and developments. That`s what I´m interested in most: the go-together of different disciplines, discovering inherent boundaries for de- or construction. Watching out for the things happening inbetween. Besides the main collection, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair`s got a fantastic experimental collection: SHOEREPAIR BY THE NO. The pieces are handcrafted,numbered and only produced for personal orders. They seem to be transcendental sculptures, perfectly accentuating and fitting the human body .The photographs represent a perfect mise-en-scène of the dramatic silhouette of these artworx.
