Gallery Label
Label for the exhibition: "The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014" GLITTER BOOTS Miu Miu, about 2005 Leather and glitter Launched in 1993, Prada’s Miu Miu diffusion line offers fashion accessories that are colourful, playful and often flirt with contradiction. The seductive attraction of these knee-high lace-up boots is subverted by a nursery school enthusiasm for all-over glitter. V&A: T.78:1, 2-2012(05/04/2014-27/07/2014)
