Fancy Footwork: Daily Candy Highlights SAIC Community Members

On July 12 Daily Candy highlighted Ars, a limited-edition collection of handmade unisex sandals crafted by Anneli Henriksson (BFA 2014), Nobuki Chiwata (BFA 2013), Caroline Kuhlman (BFA 2013)=, Sage Foundation Scholarship 2012), and SAIC footwear design professor James Sommerfeldt.  “We haven’t been this exited about shoes since we learned to tie our own,” says Chicago editor Emily Fiffer about the “tight, cohesive line.” The article features images and design details about each of the five Chicago-made styles. This fall, the Ars designers will expand their impressive brand with a line of ankle boots, flats, and tall boots. The collection is available at Chicago boutique Dovetail
