How cute are these self-assembly slippers? They are the result of a collaboration between Cape Town based – and internationally loved – textile designer and illustrator Heather Moore of Skinny laMinx, and French brand LASSO. Heather met LASSO’s designer and founder Gaspard while he was down here for Sangoma training (am so super curious about this, but that’s another story for another day, and possibly another website), “and our meeting sparked the idea of putting Skinny laMinx designs onto LASSO Shoes in a limited edition release.” Says Heather.

They are literally being launched right now at the Maison et Objet trade fair in Paris. So sadly you can’t pull out your plastic and get drastic just yet. But keep an eye on the Skinny laMinx website and LASSO’s online shop to find out when you can get your digits on a pair.
