When you think of names like Camila Skovgaard, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Noritaka Tatehana, you think of innovation. Separately, this trio has developed a unique approach to footwear design to create a progressive platform (literally and figuratively) for the experimental masses. The latest designer to blur the line between cobbling and sculpting is Gio Metodiev and his label, Gio Diev.
Founded in 2010, Gio Diev’s wearable art features braided barbed wire, architectural accents, mirrored metallics, and woven raffia. The young brand has already been shot in a six-page Vogue Italia editorial by Steven Klein and has made the "Sunday Styles" section of The New York Times.
The collection is available in New York at Edon Manor
, and will debut at Saks Fifth Avenue this spring. See the complete spring/summer 2012 lookbook here
