The FootWearArt exhibition in Hanoi features a collection of 24 pairs of shoes and is being held in celebration of the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Israel.
The shoe designs created by Kobi Levi are notable for their distinctive style, often drawing inspiration from everyday experiences.
His exceptional talent has garnered recognition from renowned fashion publications such as Marie Claire, Elle, Glamour, and Runway.
According to CNN, Levi’s designs have been described as “wearable sculptures.”
The notable personalities seen wearing his shoes include the renowned Lady Gaga, acclaimed American actor Whoopi Goldberg, and highly-regarded Israeli singer-songwriter and musician Netta Barzilai.
Levi expressed his excitement about participating in his inaugural footwear exhibition in Vietnam during an interview with Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper at the opening ceremony of the event on Wednesday.
I present to you a collection of footwear that is a testament to the elegance and charm found in everyday life.
In my perspective on art, I believe that every creation has the potential to be both distinctive and eye-catching, while also embracing simplicity.
“By carefully combining simple elements, one can elevate the ordinary and create something extraordinary.”
Levi finds inspiration in various sources such as tools, equipment, furniture, musical instruments, and animals, as per his statement.
We proudly offer a collection of Levi’s shoes that are meticulously crafted from genuine leather, ensuring that every pair is unique and truly exceptional.
