Fancy Feet

FEBRUARY 1ST, 2010

Fancy Feet

We wouldn't mind walking a mile in Audrey Hepburn's shoes. The closest we get is slipping our foot into Ferragamo.

For the month of February, the Salvatore Ferragamo shop on Robson Street will feature its limited edition Creations collection of iconic bag and shoe designs from the archives. Only available in a handful of cities around the world, the handmade collection features footwear originally made for more famous feet, like Judy Garland's platform sandal circa 1938 (pictured) and Marilyn Monroe's go-to stiletto created in 1959. To boot, the label's collaboration with Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto also makes its Canadian debut at the store this month.

Yohji brogues and Sophia Loren sling-backs in one stop? Are you ready boots? Start walking.
