Designer Shoes!!


I mentioned on Sunday's post that the exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum had an element of fashion to it.  (That exhibit featured pieces from private collections.)  Here is one of the fashion elements.  Designer shoes!  I had a lot of fun examining these beauties even more closely than the lady in the above photo.  I recognized several of the designer labels but there were quite a few that I had never heard of before.  I do love shoes so I'm just a tiny bit envious of the woman who owns all of these.


I thought this was an especially nice shoe with a scene from "The Woman in Gold" on the side of the silk shoe.  It beautifully depicts Gustave Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer.  The shoe was designed by Claudio Merazzi of Italy.  He's one of the shoe designers I had not heard of before.

That Klimt shoe certainly does stand out.

Would you really want to wear a shoe with a picture like this on it? I thought surely some of your shoes would be included in this display! :)

Gunn said...

Wow. Imelda Marcos would have asked for some of these:)

Lol @ Gunn!
Klimt on your feet, that's new and actually really nice!

I presume there were a fair share of Manolos. (You can always tell a guy who watched "Sex and the City". :D)

This looks like a display from some running stores that I know. And that Klimt shoe is pretty clever. I know women who would love it.

What a fabulous collection!

Thérèse said...

What fun! I love the Klimt shoe!

The second shot is quite inventive by using the painting as decoration. If my memory serves me right, it is one of the stolen paintings during the Holocaust which has been part of the contested pieces of art.
