Sole Desire

27 July 2013 - 21 September 2013

The rise of footwear as the defining fashion item indicates that shoes represent far more than the simple need for protective footwear.  Sole desire brings together a selection of shoes from collectors and looks at the role shoes play in the lives of their owners. The diverse selection of footwear designs reflects the multitude of meanings shoes can have for us. From the rebellious statement of the lurid sneaker to the sculptural qualities of a Vivienne Westwood bondage boot, the shoes on display confirm that shoes are ultimately objects of our soul’s desire.

Sole desire is accompanied by a generously illustrated publication, which is available as a free download
