A Throwback To The Kei Kegami Retrospective In Amsterdam

A Throwback To The Kei Kegami Retrospective In Amsterdam – Estimated reading time: 5 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.
