What inspired the launch of GLAS? And, how did your ideas come to fruition?
It was on a sunny day back in 2018 that my mother came from Luleå, the small city in Northern Sweden where I grew up and she still lives, to visit me in Stockholm. We met up for a coffee at her hotel and we happened to get chatting about what we have around us that are just essential things, but that people have made beautiful. I was in a mindset where I was looking for beautiful things everywhere.
We were first drawn to aeydē for their strong yet feminine design aesthetic and commitment to slow fashion, and according to aeydē, “the masculine and feminine underpins every element” of their designs. So for celebrating International Women's Day, we could think of no one better to speak to than the Founder and Creative Director of aeydē, Luisa Dames.
Dames, previously Luisa Krogman, has a talent for designing transcendent footwear. Universally loved for understated elegance, the aeydē range of boots and shoes combine classic shapes with a touch of modern creativity. Think of a refined loafer in creamy soft leather, add a touch of snake print, and you have classic aeydē.
