This article presents the work of Boston-based designer Nicole McLaughlin. She designs and creates shoes and apparel, but does so in a unique way where she tries to keep things in their “natural” state. A few examples include a button down made of Dover Street Market tissue paper, a bubble wrap jacket and badminton-birdie cleats. McLaughlin tries to prioritize the idea rather than its practicality.
