Chau Hur Lee's futuristic heels were another treat that I discovered at the London Show Rooms a few weeks ago. Mixing traditional materials like leather with cut acrylic and stainless steel, Chau's shoes cut a defiantly cool, if not necessarily functional, silhouette. One pair is lacking a heel, and the thin metal plates that serve as heels for another pair look like they require an incredible sense of balance. Her pieces are machine-like, with multiple parts and pieces serving different functions, and one pair of plastic heels can even be taken apart and assembled like a puzzle. Which are your favorite pair?
