Plea­sure and pain

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UPFRONT -

AF­TER its Asian de­but in Shang­hai, the crit­i­cally ac­claimed “Shoes: Plea­sure and Pain” ex­hi­bi­tion from Lon­don’s Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum will move to Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu from March 15 to April 28. The col­lec­tion dates back as far as the 1370s, trac­ing the de­light­ful – and dis­turb­ing – footwear trends that have been adopted through­out the world. Shoe-lovers will be able to coo over the iconic de­signs of Chris­tian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo, ogle the footwear of fa­mous faces from Char­lie Chap­lin to Princess Diana, and see the no­to­ri­ous pair of Vivi­enne West­wood plat­forms that caused su­per­model Naomi Camp­bell to stum­ble on the cat­walk in 1993. The ex­hi­bi­tion will next head to Guangzhou (May-June), Beijing ( July-Au­gust) and Hong Kong (Septem­ber-Oc­to­ber). shoes.swire­prop­er­
