Designer Highlight- Nicholas Adelman @Yung Vermeer

I can’t even begin to explain how happy i was to tumble upon this wok. I mean, it is sublime. I’m no history buff maybe if I had a little more time & a lot more money  i digress, I love learning about how things were. Granted, I’m not about to trade the now for then but curiosity is a wonderful thing, don’t you agree? Its like time travel 101.

We can’t talk about design & not delve into shoes at some point, Fashion or not. Shoes are the Sole of an outfit. pun 😀 no? ok moving on. I love shoes. Even better a shoe that makes a statement. Today’s profile combines three of my fave things, art, history & shoes.

Meet Nicholas aka the Yung Vermeer.  He came up with this collection for his ‘ A walk Through Art History’ for his AP Studio Art portfolio.   School is cool, no?  Needless to say, he aced it.

…I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture’s art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture….

& I know a few things i would trade for these babies 😉

These designs are originals, he owns the rights, patent copyright & all see he did his homework Smart chap 🙂 You gotta patent your work guys.

Occupy your space like awkward silence. or something 😉

Now, i love art. I’d love to see more African History on something like this. But then again, not much of it is documented  & renowned with exception of Egyptian History. I could be wrong. Prove me wrong, will you?
