Beautiful 1920s and 30s shoes

I adore 1930s shoes and I have been amassing a great collection of 1920s and 30s shoe pins that I would like to share here. I never cease to be amazed at the at the elegance and sophistication of some of the designs and I would dearly love to own them or see them reproduced for the modern market. I think the shoes with cut-outs and geometrical patterns are some of my favourites from designers such as Schiaparelli, and Perugia.

I have a Pinterest page full of pics of 100s of vintage shoes that I have found online and appropriately called ‘Vintage Shoe Love’. So, if you adore vintage shoes, take a look ūüôā

Book: Fashion (The Collection of the Kyoto Costume Institute)

This is a book I bought myself for Christmas. It covers fashion history from the 18th century to the 20th century, with glossy photographs of the collection held by the Kyoto Costume Institute in Japan. The book has been out for a while, but oh my, if you don’t own it yet, go out and buy it immediately! So much inspiration for any swing fashionista, the kind of clothes that are so beautiful it makes my chest ache. The Poiret, the Schiaparelli, the Chanel, oh god the Vionnet! The Vionnet, people! Now I want desperately to visit the Kyoto Costume Institute. A holiday to Japan anyone?

Seriously folks, this book is sheer fashion heaven. It is definitely now one of the favourites in my collection. You can buy it here on Amazon. Enjoy!
