Plushophilia: stuffed animal fetish.
Nasophilia: nose fetish.
Hybristophilia: fetish for people who have committed serious crimes.
People are into some weird stuff.
Not us. We’re sticking to a good old-fashioned shoe fetish — Minna Parikka’s footwear, in particular.
The Finnish designer has been a shoe fiend since she was a child. Inspired by a love of colour, detailing and surrealism, her cute-as-a-button line — now available online — is as comfortable as it is beautiful: heart-shaped cutouts, corset lacing and patent bows abound.
If that’s not enough to get you hot under the collar, she also offers a smorgasbord of sexy, sugarcoated fashion, from fine knit jumpsuits and slinky leather gloves to bondage masks made from the shapes and forms of shoes.
Naughty, yes, but oh so nice.
Available online at minnaparikka.com, £62-£342.
