Well Soled

Culture Watch

For a company that creates sculpture out of shoes—who can deny that Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2009 African sandal was a tribal-art masterpiece—it only seems fitting that its production center is more museum than factory. At the Fieso d’Artico, the company’s new footwear workshop outside of Venice, nearly as much floor (and wall) space is given over to the brand’s own shoe archive, collectibles and contemporary art as to the production floor. In addition to the large-scale sculptures, like Jean-Jacques Ory’s “Venus a l’escarpin,” seen here, are artworks by Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama and Andy Warhol, among others.
