Fashion, food, art… street culture has filtered in everywhere. One of its leading totems is of course the sneaker. Collaborations, customisations, ultra-personalisation… and now the humble shoe that’s gone from the gym out onto the pavement is trading its streetwear accessory status for that of objet d’art. Clémence Chasselon has chosen to approach it from a very particular angle: the sole! Fascinated by the graphic details that characterise the rarely seen underside of every shoe that makes contact with the ground, this self-confessed Nike addict works mainly with the American label’s most iconic designs: the Air Max 1, the Air Force 1 and not forgetting the Air Jordan. Legendary shoes whose history she knows off by heart, and to which she pays tribute by transforming them into works of art. After creating a mould of the sole in resin comes the personalisation: flowers, powder, pigments and sequins, elements that she sparingly increments, to create a unique design object.
