With this overwhelming title, the Victoria & Albert Museum has baptized his last exhibition, where you will find more than 250 pairs of shoes! ranging from Cinderella’s glass pump, to the dizzying platforms that made stumble Naomi Campbell on the catwalk.
An exceptional collection that reviews 2.000 years of history. “Shoes have great cultural significance because they show the status of the person who wore them”, said Helen Persson, curator of the exhibition. “The most uncomfortable and less practical shoes meant high status”.
Historical pieces from ancient Egypt and China are exhibited next to models of seventy designers, including Blahnik, Louboutin, Choo and Prada. An unprecedented meeting where you’ll find shoes of Marilyn Monroe, Queen Victoria, Princess Diana, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga … in an exciting exploration of the transformative power of footwear. Because the choice of our shoes projects an image of what we want.
