British architect and designer Julian Hakes has released a new collection of Mojito styles in collaboration with Swarovski for Spring/Summer 15.
Julian Hakes’ Mojito sandals are a combination of architectural and fashion design, unique in their genre. Awarded ‘Drapers footwear designer of the year 2012’, he is a London-based architect and bridge designer that blends his two passions to create physics-defying, sculptural shoes using a sophisticated 3D laser-scanning technique. More than just avant-garde fashion accessories, these shoes are true design artworks.
Julian Hakes created an ingenious shoe design made from a single strip of durable and stable carbon fiber that wraps around the foot. Because this strip is reminiscent of the lime spiral found in a mojito cocktail, Hakes came up with the name “Mojito.” Hence, the Mojito shoe was born.
For Spring/Summer 15, Julian Hakes incorporated Swarovski elements to his creations, making his iconic Mojito sandals even more unique. Julian Hakes is also an approved brand for Swarovski Elements.
