Mojito Heels: Julian Hakes’ architectural shoe wonder

At first glance, the unique single spiraling strip shoe design first envisioned by Julian Hakes back in 2009, might appear more like an architectural art work and less like a pair of heels meant to join us in our daily quests, all while walking the busy city streets. Clearly, there’s more than meets the eye with these statement spiral heels, because behind their fashion forward appeal and unusual sophistication hides a comfortable lightweight concept and an indescribable elegance reflected by the smoothest curves.

The architectural fantasy collides with the purest form of design in a product that came along by mere accident, all while the London-based architect was trying to figure out the essential parts of the shoe that always end up supporting the foot. It wasn’t long after the fortunate experiment that the Mojito heels were being brought to life and named accordingly, with the lemon swirl used to complete a mojito drink serving as main inspiration. Sometimes creativity is as simple as that.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
