As you can see, the Alain Tondowski Spring 2018 collection is definitely not run-of-the mill. In uncertain times like these we need a little happiness in our lives and Alain’s new collection will help with that. Tondowski was influenced by various art movements, time periods and designers for Spring 2018.
The 7 cm demi-circle used by Mr. Tondowski is a homage to the Bauhaus art movement and their belief in using modernist shapes from different art disciplines to create something truly distinctive. Another way Alain showcases this inspiration is by his use of chrome metallic leather and pvc straps.
50s and 60s fashion is temporal reference point and the Alain Tondowski Spring 2018 brings back this period by the materials chosen for the collection. Materials such as plaid, braided leather, metal eyelets, feathers and vinyl were popular during those time periods and favored by Pierre Cardin and Paco Rabanne.
Another influence for the collection comes from the work of acclaimed shoe designer Tokio Kumagai whose penchant for natural materials and playful silhouettes are a muse for Alain Tondowski’s designs for Spring.
For those looking for an avant-garde collection that feels as good as it looks then you cannot go wrong with any of these shoes.
