During the Baroque Art Period, art patrons called for a more dramatic and emotional design which, unbeknown to the artists, was displayed as a means of impressing visitors by expressing triumphant power and control. Being the art historian that John is, he drew correlations between the Baroque era and modern fashion, and drew inspiration from the grandiose and opulent Cortona palaces. Built on an exquisite and decadent Louis the 14th hexagonal heel, the laced-pump Cortona combined soft stamped suedes with robust patent tips. Perfect for those who understand the delicacies of visual curves and the contrapposto of royal materials. There's no fashion like old fashion.
