Art & Sole : Fantasy "Art Shoes" from the Stuart Weitzman Collection

Do you LOVE shoes? Do you LOVE art?

Whether you love one or both, the new coffee-style book Art & Sole by Jane Gershon Weitzman {husband to the famous Stuart Weitzman} will be a treasured keepsake. 

Inside this book you will find around 150 shoes from over 1,000 that have been commissioned for display in the store windows since the first Stuart Weitzman retail shop opened in the mid-1990's on Madison Avenue in NYC. Keep in mind, the shoes showcased inside this book are not meant to be worn. "Art shoes" are pure fantasy. You will flip through the pages of Art & Sole in amazement as you see shoes made from the most unique materials including feathers, paper, ceramic, metal, resin, playing cards, corrugated cardboard, Swarovski crystals, even fresh flowers {by Jane Carroll} and frosting {by THE Sylvia Weinstock}.

Art & Sole is the perfect gift for any occasion including bridal showers and for gifting to the bridal party. The book is gorgeous even before it's opened as it features a vibrant red cloth hardcover with an elaborately embossed crystal shoe and gilded edging on the pages of the book. There's even a satin ribbon marker {not sure why exactly, but I love books that have this}. This book retails for $30, but right now you can purchase Art & Sole for just $21.77.

For the month of October, 100% of the profits from the sale of Art & Sole will go towards breast cancer research {Jane "spearheaded philanthropy for the Stuart Weitzman company by generating funds to support breast and ovarian cancer research and awareness}.
