Déjà Vu: Not so Unique Forms

Art sometimes flirts with fashion.

Fashion, however, is often more overt in her advances towards art.

Such was the case with these Prada heels from FW08.

I had saved this image for my archives ages ago, but couldn’t think of why I was so obsessed with these shoes.

Unique Forms of Leather in Milan, Prada FW08.

I don’t generally prefer Prada or have a soft spot for chunky, clunky shoes.

Then I realized that they emulate one of my favourite pieces of sculpture – futurist Umberto Boccioni’s Unique Forms of Continuity in Space.

Unique Forms of Continuity in Space by Boccioni. Movement, mastered.

The dynamic flow of movement is captured in both objects so eloquently.

The Boccioni satiates my soul, however, like only art can.
