Italian Shoes: A Tribute to an Iconic Object

The world of Italian footwear interpreted through playful visual pairings by fashion photographer Giovanni Gastel. A fitting tribute to the excellence of Italian manufacturing, for all those who love elegance and creativity, and for all women who love shoes.

In a sequence of beautiful shots, Gastel juxtaposes shoes with common objects that evoke them by their shape, color or texture. Pairings of great elegance, witty and unusual, highlight the creativity of the shoe designs. With an introduction by fashion journalist Giusy Ferre.
