Head to Toe brings together art shoes from the Weitzman Art Shoe Collection, the ribbon headdresses of Candace Kling, recycled jewelry by Harriete Estel Berman, and shoes fit for a rockstar from Chris Francis.
To dress up the shop windows at Stuart Weitzman boutiques, Jane Weitzman commissioned artful shoes from artists all over the world, which resulted in everything from delicate flowered heels to bedazzled high-tops. A master of ribbon and fabric folding, Candace Kling creates imaginative and fanciful headdresses that are works of art. Harriete Estel Berman creates one-of-a-kind jewelry using post-consumer plastics and cut decorative tins to comment on the waste of consumerism while also critiquing the amount of money spent on seductive advertising. From the City of Angels, Chris Francis crafts glam-rock wearable artworks using traditional cobbler techniques and tools.
