A Throwback To The Kei Kegami Retrospective In Amsterdam – Estimated reading time: 4 minutes
The Lloyd Hotel 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. While I was staying at the hotel back in 2012, I was delighted to take in small exhibit showcasing Kei Kagami’s fashion forward shoes. As a woman with Sarah Jessica Parker like tendencies, this exhibit was right up my alley.
A Throwback To The Kei Kegami Retrospective In Amsterdam
Kei Kagami, a former architect turned shoe maker has worked with designers like John Galliano. The exhibition that was being held at the hotel was a retrospective tribute to 10 years of his work.
The shoes were daring, bold, funky, and most of all, incredibly beautiful. Each pair was an extreme work of art. Astonishingly enough, all of his handcrafted shoes were considered wearable!
Not only were the shoes stunning, so was the space. This exhibition not only made me aware of an artist I hadn’t know about previously; it further convinced me that the Lloyd Hotel is really the coolest venue in Amsterdam, if not the world.

Wow – these are really interesting! Though I don’t think I could wear most of those heels
@Andrea – Me either. 🙂
Imagine walking in them when you have had a beer or two!!
@Natalie – It would be a dangerous endeavor.
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!
@Stephanie – Yay, I’m not the only one.
@Laurel – me too! 🙂
Very funky! I would love to see the shoes with wheels in action.
Great designs and amazing pictures! Thank you for posting!
@Alexa – thanks for your comments. As a woman who loves shoes, this was an amazing exhibit to take in. 🙂
