DÉCOUVREZ LES 14 MUSÉES DE LA VILLE DE PARIS
The work of Perugia, the celebrated 20th-century shoemaker, this ensemble belonged to the famous French singer-actress Mistinguett. Perugia's creations betray oriental, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, medieval and Cubist influences picked up in the course of his travels and encounters, and through the art education he received from Paul Poiret. With its snakes and face-to-face gryphons and dragons, the ornamentation for these T-bar shoes and their accompanying purse is probably Persian-inspired.
