Discover the selection from the Summer 2015 shoe collection, shot by Roe Ethridge.
This season, the inspirations ranged from graphic shapes and shiny accessories for trendy looks, to subtle work on natural materials and fabrics for more of a relaxed style.
The Flat Loafer is a revamp of the iconic Oxford loafer, declined in a rich version thanks to the amazing patchwork of sequins and jewel-like beads on the upper part of the shoe. We find a similar patchwork of jewels on the Sneakers Boots as well as the Sandal with its heel inspired from the FW14 Show.
New York based photographer Roe Ethridge captured the essence of this collection through the prism of the Artful Jewel theme.Shoes Photography

Fondation Louis Vuitton launches the second phase of its inaugural program with an expansive exhibition by Olafur Eliasson, from December 17, 2014 to February 16, 2015.
"Contact", Olafur Eliasson’s exhibition, explores “the relations between self, space, and universe” by creating a cosmos within the Fondation.
"Contact", Eliasson’s first solo show in France since his 2002 exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, envelops visitors in a choreography of moving light and shadows, seemingly transporting them into the darkness of outer space. A number of smaller optical devices distributed throughout specially built passageways continue the artist’s ongoing investigation into the mechanisms of perception and the construction of space.
As Olafur Eliasson explains, “My exhibition addresses that which lies at the edge of our senses and knowledge, of our imagination and our expectations. It is about the horizon that divides, for each of us, the known from the unknown.”
Chief Curator : Suzanne Pagé
Curators: Laurence Bossé and Hans Ulrich Obrist, in close cooperation with Claire Staebler, together with Olafur Eliasson and his studio.
