The First OC in ages from a very lazy blogger. I got a pair of shoes from the H&M x Maison Martin Margiela collection a while back deeply discounted.
I thought they would be a fun colour for Summer (buying in Winter), however my sister’s comment that they were remarkably skin coloured should have been a warning as to their future. With the arrival of the patchy Spring sun and the realisation I would look like a friend of Hannibal’s I decided to try and patina them instead.
Disappointingly the day before colouring a friend spilt some kind of chemical solution on the right shoe hence the dark line cutting across it, but despite that, under-inking of the right shoe and some very very messy welt work I think they’ve turned out pretty great. The lighter back and unkempt soles and welt will help, I feel, keep my increasingly geriatric wardrobe looking a bit younger. To all those wondering about patina I will look to do a longer post soon, unfortunately I forgot to take photos of the process so I can’t make the tutorial I so desperately searched for before making these.
Colour is Brick Red, wear photos to come…
