Aoi Kotsuhiroi’s Fashion Sculpture


February 2, 2011

by Gracia Ventus

I have recently found this designer, nay, a sculptor is more befitting a title, by the name of Aoi Kotsuhiroi. If you’ve been gushing over Pamela Love and her talon rings, well Aoi’s works are waaaaay beyond those commercial, heavily copied designs. Her jewellery from NOWHERE collection are quite like poems about death which have been interpreted into objects. Forget about your typical silver or brass, Aoi creates art pieces most intricate from different exotic materials such as Urushi lacquered horn, human hair and (my favourite part) ancient gold nuggets from more than one millenium ago! Best of all, most of them are one-offs, so noone’s going to own the same piece, EVER.

Wait I forgot to mention she does shoes as well (no, not really). They are custom made so they will be rarer (more rare?) than the Nina Ricci heelless boots. Get yours here now!
