I have noticed that I have the strangest habit of checking people out. (No, not in a creepy kind of way) But more in an observing way. I get my fashion inspiration from the street, that’s why I am a big fan of street style photography. I love to look at people’s outfit and especially their shoes. (After all shoes says a lot of someone’s personality.) I think that there is one thing that we women have in common. And that’s our love for shoes. My mom once told me that a woman never has enough shoes. And that’s something I totally agree with!
After almost 25 weeks of renovation, the Kunsthal in Rotterdam has reopened her doors. For the reopening, the Kunsthal came up with a treat for all the ladies in The Netherlands. An exhibition on the history of shoes. With 450 pairs of high heels, created by great designers like: Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, but also creations by upcoming young designers. Oh, heaven! I haven’t seen so many shoes at the same time. The exhibition is all about the evolution of shoes and heels. It’s interesting to see how shoes have changed through the years. Like how the inches of heels are getting higer and higher and how some shoes are created like a real form of art. It’s incredible to see how talented, original and creative designers can be.
This exhibition made me realize why I love shoes this much. It’s all about the elegant and feminine feeling that a shoe can give to a woman.
So ladies remember: a woman can never have too many shoes! During the exhibition, I encountered a few interesting facts about shoes that I wanted to share with you!
1. Did you know that Christian Louboutin’s red soles are a registered trademark of the brand?
2. Most woman own more than 17 pairs of shoes!
3.51% of the women always watch other shoes that women wear
4. High heels were originally created for men.
Love, from Sam.
