High style in Rotterdam
According to the PR people behind Rotterdam’s Kunsthal museum, “many women long for new shoes as for new love.” We hate to generalize, but we might agree. In fact, we think a few women might even prefer the shoes. One test of this theory might be just how many people visit S.H.O.E.S Head Over Heels, February 1 through May 11, at the newly renoed Netherlands museum. More than 500 shoes will be on display from circa-1900 Victorian boots to the first stilettos invented by Roger Vivier in 1954 to modern-day models by Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Versace and Vivian Westwood. Adults €16.20, youth 12 to 18 €9.95, kids 6 to 11 €7.70. kunsthal.nl. [CC]
