INSPIRATION Hellstern&Sons 1920… Louis Vuitton Resort SS||2015

The House of Hellstern was founded by Louis Hellstern in Paris in 1870 with an atelier in Place Vendome. The design of the shoes was very extravagant and sometimes even extreme, like this over decorated black and white Mary Janes that fitted very well the Jazz Age vibe of the twenties [left]. This pair might have been Nicolas Ghesquière's inspiration for the shoes of the Louis Vuitton resort collection [right], showcased a month ago in Monaco.
