BAT BOWS

Over the last few months, it seems that I've entered this, uh—relationship—with lucite (or, you know, PLASTIC. What the hell, let's call it like it is. Calling it lucite makes me feel only marginally better.), and I'm disturbingly committed. It was one of those things— it started out casually, I blinked, I opened my eyes, and suddenly I'm married to a lucite dude, living in a plastic palace and lounging in lucite pj's.  And I'm still in the honeymoon phase. Not only can I not stop wearing the stuff, but I can't stop fantasizing about all of the tactile experiences I can possibly have with my beloved lucite: lucite and leather, lucite and lace... Dear lord, it even SOUNDS good.

Sooo, when I got my hands on this delicious, thick pebbled chap leather, I KNEW where it was going.  Have I mentioned how much I adore shopping for leather?  I was particularly excited for this hide.  In fact, if I could, I'd wrap myself in a nice, thick layer of it and forgo fabric altogether, believe me.  But that's a story for another day.

Those shoes are HOT! Did we ever tell you that we keep large bins of leather under our design table and have additional stashes in each of our closets...it is impossible to resist...One must not be timid when working with it - you have a great flair for it!

Lucite and lace, that sounds like a really good title for...something!
It's incredible how you really transform these shoes.

lucite is a designer's dream, I love mixing it with anything traditional. Great for lamp bases too, and of course-shoes. pgt

I want to think that there is a major difference between lucite and plastic, but there really isn't! lol
Lucite is just stronger and doesn't scratch as easily as plastic does.

A shotgun wedding? Lucite PJ's! =)

I'm sure I'm not the only one just a little bit jealous that you're all exclusive now, but he's a stand up dude and certainly knows how to rock, so you definitely gotta lock that one down. I heard the guy's also responsible for many glorious and lasting works of art, since all acrylic paints are basically just Lucite suspended in water... Pretty badass

Killer kicks as always! like the dramarama scene from Nightmare on Elmstreet 4.

I love the shoes! Can we see outfits too? I'm very curious as to what you'd wear with such conspicuous feet!

I agree with a Perfect Gray. Why are you not a famous-name fash-pack runway type? Your ideas are phenomenal and the execution sublime. Lust! :)
