Marina Chedel

Part of the ‘Over the peak’ collection, 2016.

Chedel drew her inspiration from the Swiss Alps, where she grew up ‘surrounded by crampons, snap hooks and ropes.’ The sandals are embedded on vertiginous, plinth-like platform soles, in turn asymmetrical, slanting or crenelated like mountain peaks, ‘to give the feeling of ascending, of reaching a summit or experiencing a gradient’s steepness.’
Material: leather, pinewood, paracord, metal pieces and hardwear.
