Staircases are the bees knees. What is it that makes them so alluring? Is it the vague hint of there being something better at the end? Escher seemed to understand the mystere of staircases well. His “never ending” stairs pops into my mind every time I see sets of them- and I know I’m not the only one. While it can’t be perfectly replicated, there’s a shop in Shanghai, called ALTER which takes the Escher idea, strewing staircases all over the walls and floors, and mannequins acting like gravity is NBD. It was awarded as one of the best shops in the world, so if you’re a fan of cool staircases and in Shanghai, check it out.

Surrealism doesn’t really play well with fashion… although I do have fun wearing shirts as skirts or pants on my head, it’s not exactly “surreal”. But perhaps these shoes from Pameo Pose, with grass inside their perspex heels, are a “step” in the right direction.
