31st August 2015
Shoes: Pleasure and Pain
At the V&A
The V&A’s summer 2015 fashion exhibition, Shoes: Pleasure and Pain explores the transformative power of extreme footwear. More than 200 pairs of historic and contemporary shoes from around the world are on display, many for the first time.

The selection includes these boots from Schiaparelli’s 1938 Circus collection, with monkey fur cascading over the ankle boot. They recall a painting by rené Magritte, Love Disarmed (1935). The exhibition explores the agonizing aspect of wearing shoes as well as the euphoria and obsession they can inspire.
