The non-conformist shoe of Vivienne WestwoodAfter London and Leeds, the traveling Shoes exhibition of Vivienne Westwood arrives in Milan, at the brand’s boutique in corso Venezia 25.
The protagonist is the non-conventional approach of the English stylist to footwear that has defined the last 40 years of her career with bold models characterised by an iconic appeal. The exhibition presents some of the most widely celebrated footwear styles from her archive, like the 1981 Pirate Boot with bands and buckles that start from the upper and continue up along the bootleg. There is then Rocking Horse that was a protagonist with its wooden platform from the 1985 Mini-Crini collection. Next, are the brand’s famed bondage boots, the Tracey Trainer model on heels, and the Super Elevated platforms that made even top model Naomi Campbell slip on the catwalk at the FW 93-94 season presentation.
Continuing through 14 April, the exhibition will make all fans of the English stylist go absolutely wild.
