Though the sculptures of Constantin Brâncuși are clean, modern and composed of simple lines, the 20th-century Romanian-born artist's work was actually quite complex in its creation. The same could be said of Paul Andrew's shoe designs.
The designer was inspired after he happened upon the Paris-based artist’s atelier, still left intact, after catching an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou. But the influence goes beyond the style of the artwork. The artist was relentless in perfecting his shapes before casting in brass, a process similar to what Andrew uses when creating shoe molds. “I love those two parallels and the connection to his work and the process of shoemaking,” Andrew said.
