  • Description

    Drawing inspiration from styles of bye-gone days - Cassandre - name of well-known Paris shoe fashions, moulds its Spring collection, shown in Paris, Feb 29, on the Louis XV period.

    Shoes are long - very long - with pointed toes - and accordingly - very thin heels. Height of fashion: the 65-75mm heel, arched to combat foot fatigue. More moderate styles, have plainer and simple lines. The base and top of these shoes are fashioned with tiny fabric gathers.

    In general, however, the silhouette of the shoe-conscious woman for 1960, become higher and longer. Footwear is predominately in kid with the use of fabrics toning in with spring clothes.

    'Coquin' - with a 6cm heel, in wild silk with green spots on a red background, is typical of the new - yet very old narrow shoe line.

    'Alicia' sports the 7cm Louis XV heel in leather. Sole in box calf caramel colour, is saddle-stitched, with protective round studs.

    'Charlotte' with an 8cm heel is an unusual style in white goatskin. Elastic holds the instep to give firmness to the fullness of the shoe.

    For more casual wear - "Fouberie' - a heel-less mauve slipper, is held to the stocking by pressure of the sole.
