Feiyue + Unholy Matrimony recently collaborated on a wearable, custom shoe design. These light weight, comfortable shoes will be available Spring/Summer 2010.
Unholy Matrimony was conceived in 2002 by artist Brett Westfall and launched in 2003 with the idea of combining conceptual art and fashion design.
The Feiyue sneaker first appeared in the 1920s in Shanghai. This small shoe has guided the paths of all social classes in China, has crossed continents, arriving in Europe in 2006, where it was picked up by a team of French enthusiasts, fascinated by sneakers and urban culture.Losing nothing of its vintage and authentic charm, Feiyue has undergone a series of transformations. With a gradual evolution of practices, blending in French and international influences, the brand is now set to conquer the walkways of Western cities.
Fascinated by urban art, music and travel, the team intuitively follows its day-to-day fancies to enhance the Feiyue range, following no specifications on trends or other preliminary studies. Memories, images, impressions and moods, picked up along their travels, permanently mesh and enhance the brand’s identity. This philosophy of opening up the mind to the world at large and researching new models is a source of inspiration for all the diverse, eclectic creations, of both the shoes themselves and their visual enhancement. Literally, FEIYUE means “Flying Forward”. The two words combination symbolizes body and mind elevation.
