Shoes fascinate women of all ages and have the power to crystallize a moment in fashion. InVogue: The Shoe, Harriet Quick has curated more than 300 fabulous images from a century of BritishVogue, featuring remarkable styles that range from the humble clog to exquisite hand-embroidered haute couture stilettoes via fetishistic cuissardes and outrageous statement heels. The images are grouped into five thematic chapters devoted to dazzling Cinderella heels; Town & Country classics; Cult Style inspiration; the escapism of Summer Dreaming and the fantasia of Extreme Heels. The images include pivotal work from Hoyningen-Huene, Irving Penn, Corinne Day, Norman Parkinson, Mario Testino and Nick Knight.
Vogue is one of the world's most successful - and enduring - luxury brands. BritishVogue's library of a million peerless pictures is celebrated in a new range of books that encapsulate the beauty, elegance and high production values of the brand. TheVogue portfolio series will become the definitive books on the subject, each volume providing a wealth of fabulous images accompanied by incisive commentaries from a team of excellent Vogue writers.
