Masaya Kushino. Who is he?
Taking Avant-garde to a new level. Elements of deer antler, peacock feathers or horse hair turn these heels into spectacular pieces of art! Unwearable... but absolutely magnificent.
Kushino's pieces are inspired by dragons and beasts of the natural world such as horses and birds. A magical hybrid of Kushino's remarkable imagination that he says he modelled after the Chimera; a fire-breathing female monster from Greek Mythology - usually part lion, goat, and serpent. Enjoy!
