I wanted to treat myself to a fun read that I could get lost in for a few hours with a cup of tea. I stumbled across this book a few weeks ago in Stuart Weitzman when I was trying on some shoes. It’s called Art & Sole by Jane Weitzman, wife of shoe designer Stuart Weitzman. That fact alone immediately caught my attention. The book features 150 fantasy art shoes made of highly unique materials she has discovered and commissioned by artists for the first Stuart Weitzman shop on Madison Avenue in the mid-1990s. Made from feathers, paper, ceramic, metal, resin, playing cards, corrugated cardboard, Swarovski crystals, even fresh flowers and frosting!
Not only was this a great weekend read, the vibrant red cover and gold edges make Art & Sole an eye catching coffee table book and easily enjoyed by shoe lovers and art aficionados alike.
The book is available online at www.StuartWeitzman.com and local Stuart Weitzman Stores.
