Designer Sue Tsai is transforming the New York art scene. Her creations, which are a striking combination of mixed media sculpture and acrylic on canvas, have gone viral, blurring the line between fine art, fashion and pop culture. With the debut of PUMA x SUE TSAI, Sue uses her signature style to tell a story of flowers gone wild, rising up to take the planet back from humanity.
She brings a playful, pop aesthetic to her work and mixes seemingly disparate shapes, colours and patterns that offer an edge to her dreamscape-like world. These shoes emphasise that contrast, setting a floral graphic on top of a camouflage print. An embroidered vampire’s mouth is fixed onto the vamp (naturally), while the outsole features moulded rubber inserts at the toe and heel for a chunky form. The look is finished with an iridescent overlay on the heel.
