Shoe Icons: Andre Perugia's FISH shoe.

Perugia was a French designer who made handmade shoes in the early years of the twentieth century. He designed for several other companies too including I Miller, Givenchy and Charles Joudan. He was also known for making showstoppers, such as the famous heelless red pump of 1937 and 'tributes' to artists including Picasso and Braque.
The Fish shoe is his 1955 homage to Braque, featuring a slender heel and high throated vamp with a cheeky little tail and mouth.

On display at Kunsthal Rotterdam 2014
