Famous for his trademark use of unique materials and his creation of one-of-a-kind, "million dollar" shoes for Oscar nominees, American designer Stuart Weitzman's personal collection of antique shoes features a similarly eclectic range. Lavishly illustrated with one hundred color photographs from the Stuart Weitzman Collection, the exhibition catalogue Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes explores the impact of twentieth-century design and culture on the evolution of women's shoes from 1870-1980. It is a must-have for all shoe fans.
