Hot Art: Bata’s “Roaring” New Show

Andre Perugia designs on display at the Bata Shoe Museum

ON NOW One of the more prosperous and progressive decades of the early 20th century was, unsurprisingly, one of the most fashionable, too. The Bata Shoe Museum turns back the clock with its exhibition The Roaring Twenties: Heels, Hemlines and High Spirits, which uses footwear to examine everything from women’s suffrage to the rise of world travel, the popularity of jazz music to the peak of art deco style. This age of post-World War I exuberance produced numerous fine shoes, including fanciful Icarus-inspired bathing shoes and glamorous heels by French designer Andre Perugia that remain strikingly stylish almost 100 years later.
