Inspired by the minimalistic, geometric shapes associated with the Cubist movement, Lako Bukia has taken her signature bold style and developed a crisp linear look in her new collection ‘cubart’. Motivated by Pablo Picasso’s renowned artwork and the theatrical costumes of Russian Cubists, Lako Bukia’s cubart is an arresting collection indicative of this powerful movement.
The collection is created in black and white to create a clear contrast between the asymmetric shapes. The use of stripes in the form of leather stitching creates outlined unique forms which are typically cubist. Lako Bukia has specifically worked to encapsulate a common theme in cubism where a form close up and from a distance creates two completely different styles. Lako has artfully recreated this in her shoe forms.
