Part of the Dark Heritage collection, 2016.
The Dutch company Stahl asked SLEM to create an innovative capsule collection to showcase their new finishes for leather, synthetics and automotive at international trade shows. Eva Klabalová designed and made a series of shoes and bags, combined with clothing created by Kamila Šárková. They ingeniously used draping, folding and pleating, getting the utmost out of the limited sample pieces.
They also applied flexible 3D printing in beautiful yet practical ways. For instance, fully 3D printed heels are often too weak to really walk on, so they developed a metal pin with several interchangeable 3D printed covers, allowing the wearer to change the heel shape whenever they like.
