South Korean designer Jinah Jung of JUNG is gearing up to show her new project, Con-shoesness: Military Monster Series, at Plan 8 in Paris from June 20 to June 26. The collection is largely comprised of bags that have been assembled from recycled Le Coq Sportif samples.

"It is not a project with Le Coq Sportif officially," says Jung. "I asked Le Coq Sportif's global creative director Fédéric Pertusier if he has sample shoes, so he gave them to me. Because those shoes were prototype shoes which made only one side, they couldn't wear and they couldn't sell. They are glad to do the recycling and I am glad to use them but for the moment."

Jung has made use of a variety of silhouettes and colorways from Le Coq Sportif, ultimately piecing them together to give the shoes new life via numerous baggage styles. Again, you can look forward to Jinah Jung's Con-shoesness: Military Monster Series showing taking place at Plan 8 June 20 to June 26.
