The Nike Air Huarache is the inspiration for my sneaker design. Based on my found out color-trend, I adept colors, materials, and other elements to it.
SNEAKER MODELING & TEXTURING
FOCUS: COLOR & MATERIAL
The Cosmic Color & Material sneaker is modeled and textured in Maxon Cinema 4d and rendered with the rendering plug-in “Redshift.” The origin of its form is the Nike Air Huarache, but I changed the shape and added some elements to it to create a unique style. Instead of laces, it has buckles like inline skates, which is the most considerable adaption to the idea of a “cosmic look. “The final colors & materials also follow the idea of a cosmic look. As mentioned, the colors are part of the “cosmic color concept “project based on a trend scouting workshop.
COLOR & TREND STUDIES
The outcome is a trend mood board, which contains the mood of a kind of an “80’s-ish future look” that combines nature with currently new materials. Also, a big contrast between general artistic impressions and fashion and architecture can be described.
Based on the displayed pictures, six colors were defined. Out of the first defined six colors, a second color range that reveals this color research’s final result has been determined. The color collection is named “cosmic colors.”
