The originality of Finnish designer Minna Parikka merges the boldness of artist Jani Leinonen to create a unique work that combines art and fashion.

The installation, showing at Amos Art Musem of Helsinki until November 12, creates a space with an optical illusion covered with a print based on Jani Leinonen’s painting. The print also highlights three styles of Minna Parikka’s satin shoes. The funny heroes of childhood combine in an amazing print for the Minna’s new pumps.

Lady Gaga loved these shoes at first sight, wearing them in her European tour, spotted by Terry Richardson’ s diary online. Stats for Footwear-Inspired Installations Trending: Older & Buzzing
