Where sexy ends and grotesque begins

Recent design graduate Leanie van der Vyver speaks to us about her project Scary Beautiful, a pair of extreme, back-to-front high heels, which she presented at Design Indaba in Cape Town.

Van der Vyver, who comes from Cape Town originally, explains the concept behind the shoes, which she developed as part of her graduation project while at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. "In my thesis I wrote about how humans are constantly trying to reach perfection and the different ways that we practice control over our bodies," she says. "I looked at what the high heel is traditionally doing and I pushed it over to see where sexy ends and grotesque begins."
