André Perugia Pumps

Andre Perugia Shoes from the 1920s

Manolo says, here for your midday shoe-viewing enjoyment are the embroidered red and black pumps from the master shoe maestro, André Perugia, shoes which currently reside in the Kyoto Costume Institute.

Gorgeous!

P.S. If you like looking at the historic clothing you should go to this blog, OMG That Dress, from which this photo comes, and follow the Manolo on the Pinterest.

    These are nearly the world’s most perfect shoe.

    Truly classic and beautiful.

    Beautiful as costume, in my opinion; I think the virtuosity of the workmanship, and perhaps its pedigree, have blinded you a bit here, Manolo. However, they make an interesting contrast to the shoe of the previous post!

    I normally do not care for this style of shoe, but honestly, these are breathtakingly lovely and they make me want to wear them.

    One of the interesting things about these extremely interesting shoes is that the style (that is, the curved heel, the pointed toe) seems to come back every now and again. And considering the amount of flogging of the ‘oh, everyone is going to do 20s influenced fashion’ that is going around, these shoes are actually right square in the spirit of the thing. A little costumey, perhaps, and if I were to wear something like them, I’d never go too close to the mark with a dropped waist dress in black and red, but certainly a dress without a defined waist, in either black or red, with a discrete something at the hip, would be a hit, I should think.

    I’d love to see the inside of those shoes. Even that little bit of lining looks interesting!
