Undercover SS05 "But Beautiful II" Monster Shoes 24CM
The show, pays tribute & is heavily inspired by Czech film Director/Surrealist Jan Švankmajer. Whom was influenced from early on in his childhood by a christmas gift received. This being a puppet theatre in the late 1930's. Švankmajer's career was full of Fantasy films that heavily incorporated dolls in unconventional manners.
A key embellishment of this season are the eyeball cuffs & accessories. Seen as buttons on blazers, on the cuffs of jackets & even on these sneakers. Used to tighten the straps & hold shoes in place. Fly buttons are also seen, these are from Švankmajer's "Alice" (1988) a fantasy/adventure film. Props are used such as dolls & puppets, an early in career inspiration.
