Some may think there’s not far to go in the world of Nordic minimalism (at least footwear-wise), but the shoe connoisseurs at The Last Conspiracy prove those assumptions wrong in their Fall/Winter 2015 campaign.
Relying on a synthesis between Scandinavian roots and Portuguese shoemaking, Danish designer Roald Nore provides modern sophistication in the form of his trademark simple shapes and timeless designs. The men’s pieces – laceless military-height boots that appear slightly worn– are an updated streamlined take on traditional causticity of grunge, while still maintaining a stripped-down and edgy aesthetic.
Nore’s fearlessness when embracing masculine styles for his womenswear in this collection was much appreciated; some of the women’s footwear shared a similar look to the men’s (with even an identical pair to the aforementioned), while others were on the dressier, more feminine end of the scale. Duo-textured pointy-toe heeled ankle booties were anything but traditional, though could easily become a new classic. With stunningly uncomplicated shapes that could fit any wardrobe, The Last Conspiracy proves that one can find ultimate beauty in simplicity.
