    For the occasion of the Fall 2014 launch of the women’s shoes collection, John Wright captured a series of graphic pictures highlighting the feature of the season: the zip.

    This line of daytime and evening shoes is vamped with zips that rock each model to modernize any silhouette. Brogues, loafers and ankle boots are made from calf or waxed calf leather. Sandals and low boots are crafted with python and suede goat leather that flatter the arch of the foot.

    In a skillful trompe-l’œil, a play on perspective, pairs of shoes have stomped through the emblematic public squares in Paris - Place de la Concorde, the Trocadero, the Louvre, etc. – under the aesthetic eye of Scottish photographer and film director John Wright.
