YUUL YIE: Fall 2018 Footwear
Korean designer Sunyuul Yie is known for her statement pearl-embellished velvet footwear. ‘Glamour’ is a word often co-opted, and often overused. This season the designer has returned the term to its classic meaning, embedding a series of shapes, colors, and patterns with old-school sentimentality.
Founded in 2013, Yuul Yie represents a new wave of cult luxury leather goods. Specializing in footwear, the brand’s collection is made with leather sourced from Italy’s finest tanneries. From reimagined Mary Jane loafers to colour block mules, everyday shoes are punctuated with statement design, trapezoidal shapes and a focus on comfortable wearability.
That’s not to say YUUL YIE’s modern signature has been ignored, though. The designer’s architectural stamp is ever present with silver balls installed within trapezoidal pieces, giving a clear nod to traditional pilgrim shoes with oval-shaped decorations and a water-waved zip.
