Gianvito Rossi Black Suede Collared Décolleté Peep Toe Bootie – It 39, 2012

About the Item

Seen on Kate Moss, Kate Hudson, Katie Holmes and countless other fashion illuminati, these eye-catching stilettos are the stuff of legend. Said to combine the delicacy of a décolleté evening dress and the sturdiness of a bootie, these sculptural shoes’ plunge vamp and curving lines remind us of the very shoe from which Elsa Schiaparelli fashioned her infamous “Shoe Hat” of 1937. Peep toe booties with plunging cutout décolleté vamp and stiletto heel; leather insole and sole. Original box and dust bag included. Retail $825. fabric: suede leather, leather noteworthy: brush with suede brush repairs: none condition: very good (worn once: extremely light sole wear and remains of price sticker on right sole) measurements: length: 10” measured along longest part of insole width: 3 1/16” measured along widest part of sole height: 8” measured from heel cuff to base of heel vamp cutout: 8” measured from heel cuff to bottom of plunge heel: 3 ¾” label: Gianvito Rossi size: It. 39; comparable to US size 8 ½ - 9 *images courtesy of Vogue UK and Metropolitan Museum of Art
