DESIGNERS from Russia

Raphael and plastic from the ocean

French designer Rafael Young (brand F_WD) has developed a collection of shoes made from recycled materials, in particular from plastic caught from the ocean. Design combines minimalism, functionality, and also gives explicit references to environmental topics. For example, the inscriptions Be part of the solution, as well as #respectourplanet and others are real manifestos and state the philosophy that their holder adheres tO F_WD - this fashion is not about trends, but about lifestyle and ideology.
