Women love their shoes; even the ones that claim to remain unfazed by shopping expeditions. So when you hear about a luxury book that celebrates 100 fashionable footwear, you can be sure that your lady friend’s eyes are going to light up. More so, when the book is The Costume Institute of Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and it has an introduction by none other than Sarah Jessica Parker. Anyone who followed the popular TV series “Sex and the City” will know that Carrie Bradshaw, the character played by Sarah Jessica Parker, owned over a 100 shoes. So it is apt that the uber-stylish actor has been roped in for this one. When asked about her turn as an introduction writer for “100 Shoes“, the actor quipped in a recent interview, “When I was asked to write the introduction to 100 Shoes, my reaction was ‘Only 100?'”.
Yes, 100 may not be enough for the woman who loves her shoes. But given that this history of shoes book comes from authoritative sources and features 209 beautiful photographs of the most path-breaking shoes lodged in the museum’s permanent collection, I think readers will be really happy.
The 232-page book will showcase creations by famous luxury shoemakers including Padova founder Andre Perugia, stiletto inventor Roger Vivier, “Spring-o-lator” innovator Beth Levine, as well as popular luxury shoe designers like Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin.
