Sebastian Errazuriz’s ’12 Shoes for 12 Lovers’ are Wearable Art With Rich Backstories

12 Shoes for 12 Lovers-2

Relationships, regardless of how serious they are, will impact your life in one way or another. This is specially true in Sebastian Errazuriz’s case, who used his past relationships and experiences with ex-girlfriends as inspiration to create 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers. It’s essentially a collection of twelve shoe sculptures that capture the essence of the women and the relationship that he had with them.

For example, the shoe pictured above, “Cry Baby” Alexandra, is about a weeping girl who came to him after a particularly bad break-up. Another shoe in the series, “Gold Digger” Alison, is about a girl who left him for her rich boss (exactly what the name implies.)

You can find the rest of the shoes in the series after the break.

There are twelve designs in the series. While it’s not my favorite in the visual sense, the one that really struck a chord was “The Rock” Alice, which was a short relationship that hit Sebastian particularly hard.

The collection will be on display from December 6th, 2013 to January 6th, 2014 at Melissa’s pop-up shop for Art Basel Miami Beach 2013.
