No matter which way you choose to look at it, one can't deny the important role shoes play in our daily lives. For some, shoes are the final touch that completes a winning look, for others shoes are an addiction ultimately leading to a bad habit that is difficult to kick. Whatever your personal take on shoes, the soon to be released book: For the Love of Shoes, edited by Patrice Farameh sheds light on the fascination with shoes and the major role they play on fashion and style:
Women have long realized that dazzling shoes not only complement the outfit‹they are the whole part. From Cinderella to Carrie, we have all fallen head over heels for "the right pair" and to hell with cost and comfort! Exploring the outer realms of avant-garde shoe design, For the Love of Shoes is an unabashed celebration of the art of the shoe. From household names such as Alexander McQueen, Manolo Blahnik, and Christian Louboutin to innovative young talents including Kobi Levi, Pauline van Dongen, and Chau Har Lee, this title presents the stunning creations of over 40 of the world¹s most pioneering designers.
Unfettered by commercialism, these accomplished designers give full reign to their artistic visions, and their influences range from Las Vegas pizzazz and arcane tribal relics to contemporary architecture and everything in between. Featuring insightful essay interviews with the designers and breathtaking imagery, this lavishly illustrated homage is the must-have accessory for shoe fanatics and fashionistas everywhere.
For the Love of Shoes will be available in bookstores everywhere in October. For more information please go to: http://www.teneues.com/shop-us/books/new-books-winter-2013/for-the-love-of-shoes.html
