”It took me 10 years to be ready for this. I’ve got a pretty good foundation of friends and family that will always keep me grounded no matter what. But I don’t think I would have been ready for it 10 years ago. So I’m really happy with the way it worked out. You need to learn how to do this. You need to learn how to keep your cool, learn how to be a leader on set, learn how to act. F—-, I still know I’ve got a ton to learn. It’s all a learning experience. I’m going to school every day.” [x]
Specially designed for the “8 variations for Stradivari” exhibition at Cremona, Italy (May 2013), this style is Kobi’s view of the classic instrument. The brown leather mimics the warmness of carved wood and with “strings” up the heel and S-shaped “holes” on the insole and sole, the transformation into a shoe shape is complete.
This design is inspired by the classic harp. Like the instrument itself, it is shaped around an empty space, where the main details are placed to complete and emphasize the overall look.
