Shoes glorious shoes! While searching for more good stuff to bring to you from the vaults of Stylesight, I stumbled upon a collection of pictures one of our correspondents took at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence. I was totally blown away by the level of craftsmanship and innovation and just had to share. The man created the cork wedge heel way back in 1937! Whatâ€™s not to like? The museum was opened in 1995 by the Ferragamo family and features sketches, patents and over 10,000 shoes dating from the 1920â€™s up until Ferragamoâ€™s death in 1960. Looking at these pictures reminds me of what fashion can be: timeless and inspiring art.
