25 year old Swedish shoe designer Andreas Lonn, is based in London where he studied footwear design, his Gothic playful shoe designs combine the inspiration of visionary designers of a by gone era such as Elsa Schiaparelli with the seedy night world of Slimelight and other S&M clubs. Heavy back black suede heels collide with delicate strings of coral or drape with monkey fur, a combination of classic and contemporary, culminating in a Gothic footwear fantasy. Designing with his contemporaries in mind for wearing them, and his longtime friend Lotta Volkova acts as the perfect muse for his towering creations. Andreas finished studying a couple of years ago and since then has gone on to design shoes for and work along side french designer Charles Anastase, a fitting collaboration, who is based in London and is showing during London Fashion week. In his "by Andreas Lonn" posts, Lonn will share with us a selection of news from his own world.
