Publisher Comments:

Caroline Cox takes fashion lovers on an exquisite journey through the most stylish footwear of the twentieth century. Vintage Shoes illuminates the crucial designers, key technical breakthroughs, and varied cultural influences that have shaped shoe fashion for the last hundred years—from André Perugias designs for society women in the 1920s to the Christian Louboutin red-soled shoes favored by celebrities today, and including designs by Salvatore Ferragamo, Charles Jourdan, Roger Vivier, Beth Levine, Vivienne Westwood, Manolo Blahnik, and others. Lavish fashion photography, specially commissioned photographs of rare period footwear, and a unique shopping guide—with tips on sourcing and caring for articles of vintage fashion—help make Vintage Shoes an unforgettable tour through a dazzling corner of haute couture history.
