Inna Mim is a young Russian designer, currently residing in the Netherlands. Her designs unite traditional Russian elements with Dutch Design.
The installation The Flying Dress highlights her MIM shoes in a spectacular fashion. The dress – which got rave reviews in Moscow and now makes its debut outside Russia – floats through space, while the MIM shoes keep contact with the earth. The shoes are made out of a single piece of leather that shapes itself after the feet of the wearer. The simple, functional design accentuates the connection with the earth.
