Maor Zabar is an Israeli hat designer whose pieces stand out for their originality and eccentricity and whose main source of inspiration is his life story and personal experience as a fashion designer and costume designer for the theatre. Each hat, made of felt, natural linen or delicate silks, is carefully crafted, sewn and artistically painted by hand to give rise to what Maor Zabar calls "Perfect Creation". Insects, flowers, food, toys or popular stories are just a few of his collections and each one takes on broad styles and facets ranging from realism to parody.

 

14 OCTOBER TO 31 DECEMBER | "IN A FAIRY TALE. THE AWESOME KOBI LEVI SHOES"| SHOE MUSEUM

Kobi Levi is an original shoe designer from Tel Aviv (Israel) for whom the shoe is, above all, "wearable art". Thanks to the Internet, his amazing shoes have caught the attention of many (and famous) shoe lovers. Lady Gaga was one of the first celebrities to wear a pair of Kobi Levi’s shoes. Kobi sees himself as an artist and a designer. His creations are unique, artistic and innovative and challenge traditional definitions of design, art and fashion. According to Kobi Levi, his shoes "are glamorous but with a sense of humour," because they can (and should) make people smile and enjoy the way they flatter their bodies and play with their clothes.
