Evening pumps

Department Store Samo

Not on view

Jeweled heels were an important fashion trend in the later 1920s, and reappeared occasionally thereafter. The Italian shoemaker Samo seems to have made rather a specialty of the style when it returned to fashion in the later 1960s. Much like the high-fashion evening dresses of the period, the tendency was to use a contrast of plain fabrics and bursts of robust trim or pattern.
