Zaha Hadid for Lacoste Footwear 2009

Lacoste proudly presents a new collaboration project with international-recognition architect firm Zaha Hadid Architects on a series of sophisticated footwear. Applying the ideas and concepts from the creative minds of the architects and transforming them into consumer products, with an additional touch on style and glamor. We kinda love that deal.

The collection apparently seem to have 3 designs - sort of like a low-cut, mid-cut and high-cut. Technically, the designs are pretty quirky for everyday use, but if you're looking forward to be the limelight of the day, this is the pair you should wear to flash and impress.

On top of the avant-garde look, Lacoste's iconic crocodile logo gets a digitized image formed by amount of embossed dots.

‘The design expression behind the collaboration with Lacoste footwear allows the evolution of dynamic fluid grids,’ explains Hadid. ‘When wrapped around the shape of a foot, these expand and contract to negotiate and adapt to the body ergonomically. In doing so a landscape emerges, undulating and radiating as it merges seamlessly with the body.’

Should be available at exclusive high-end boutiques like colette, Dover Street Market, and 10 Corso Como in July 2009.
