- How was this idea born (100 MM Diamond) andhow long did it take to realize this model?
The 100MM silhouette was born from the reaction from the blogs and social media to the luxury brand behind it – it’s a simple, yet well-crafted silhouette with high-end embellishments like a padlock, leather tag and large heel handle. For the launch of the brand’s first store, they wanted to offer something that was opulent, lavish in design and that represents Jon’s own interpretation of luxury but still has the brands core designs- Italian craftsmanship and bold design. The 100 MM sneaker silhouette featuring 175 grams of 18K gold details and 11.50cts of diamond encrusted closures ($132,000 USD) designed by Shayan Afshar. It’s the dopest, most expensive sneaker out in the marketplace today.
It took over a month to create and make this model with precious metals and precious stones.
