A Kei Kegami Restrospective At The Lloyd Hotel, Amsterdam.

December 15, 2011

The Lloyd Hotel and Cultural Embassy in Amsterdam is pretty much one of the coolest hotels around. More than just a hotel, it plays host to small exhibitions, performances and other cultural events.

As I wandered around the hotel, I was delighted to come upon this small exhibit showcasing Kei Kagami’s shoes! As a woman with Sarah Jessica Parker like tendencies, this exhibit was a complete delight.

Not only were the shoes stunning, so was the space.

Then there were the shoes. Daring, bold, funky and incredibly beautiful. Each pair is an extreme work of art.

Astonishingly enough, all of his hand crafted shoes are considered wearable! The exhibition currently being held at the hotel is a retrospective tribute to 10 years of his work.

    Especially those shoes that have the little wheels for the heels, probably wouldn’t be a good idea after a few beers!

      @Jarmo – Just set-up an ambulance to come in advance as surely an injury would occur. 😉

    I do not remember where I was, but I found a shoe museum somewhere in Latin America. Maybe Mexico City. I love looking at shoes too!
