Rafaello Scardigli is a graphic and shoe designer, who studied shoes and accessories design at Polimoda in Florence, Italy. It was there he started to use shoe design as a means to express the concept of “vacuum identity”.
Scardigli’s pieces are handcrafted leather sculptures with a nod to the futuristic as well as high fashion. The designer’s inspirations come from a view of the body and identity in our present world. He plays with volume, flattening the shoes to produce an illusion where the object seems to reproduce itself “doubting its reality”. Wow. Enjoy.. xo
