It's all about the shoe!

It is safe to say that Silkbrocade is obsessed with this shoe! These are the most recent shots by Ellen McDermott of the Lady's London shoe by James Davis[ies], here shown with its closely matching patten (a silk was used but is slightly different than the shoe itself; the fit indicates it belonged to the same person). Collections intern, Bridget Swift will continue to assist with research on this shoemaker and his production. (Please see earlier blogs.)

Notice the way the patten changes and foreshortens the shoe in profile, and the fit to the shoe. Stunning yet functional.
