Vivienne Westwood Shoes
Edited by Luca Beatrice & Matteo Guarnaccia.
The definitive monograph on Queen Westwood's unusual, fantastic, bizarre, almost completely unwearable shoe collections, dating from 1973 to 2006. Seemingly designed with a total disdain for the limitation of the human anatomy, Westwood's elaborate footwear are works of art, combining so many of her classic themes: from punk to S&M to Elizabethan. Extremely dramatic and above all highly conceptual, each shoe has been photographed beautifully, singularly – like a fetishised object, which indeed they are.
