SKINS is a concept luxury shoe brand focused on packaging products with an environmental conscience. The all-in-one package functions with many lives; a carry box, fold-out hanging wall organizer, and stackable shoe shelf, that obtains a purpose extending past its initial objective of simply transporting the shoes and accessories from the store to home. The package highlights designing with intentions of reusability and multi-functionalities that promote sustainability and reducing waste.

The design is constructed from a series of separate pieces. The carry-box shell and the shoe box are laser cut out of paperboard and illustration board with the logo and details engraved in.
The flat pieces are then folded and constructed by hand.
The shoe box itself acts as a storage box that features a see-through side, allowing you to easily find the pair of shoes you are looking for. The box has a second purpose where it may be stacked together with multiple boxes to create a shoe shelf. The versatility and endless combinations allow you to create a shelf adaptable to your living space; arrange, stack and organize your shoes as you like.
The lid of the shoe box features a small hidden compartment that acts as storage space for extras such as shoe laces and dust bags. The shoe tag is looped into the compartment lid and doubles as an opening handle.
The carry box folds out and reveals itself as a long, narrow wall organizer. This organizer is made out of strong paperboard and features a fabric handle at the top to support the entire shell behind a door, in your closet, or simply on a wall. It is a multi-purpose wall organizer with pockets to hold small accessories and features a component that is specifically designed to organize socks, tights, scarves and ties and all of your shoe accessories.
