As the wife of footwear maestro Stuart Weitzman, Jane Weitzman is certainly a woman whose life revolves around shoes. To indulge her own love of fantasy footwear, Weitzman has created “Art & Sole,” a coffee table book which features a spectacular selection of fantasy shoes; 150 fantasy art pieces made of highly unique materials she has discovered and commissioned by artists for the first Stuart Weitzman shop on Madison Avenue in the mid-1990s. Made from feathers, paper, ceramic, metal, resin, playing cards, corrugated cardboard, Swarovski crystals, even fresh flowers and frosting, many of the shoes featured in “Art & Sole” are in printed form for the first time. We spoke to the shoe designer’s sole mate about her foray into publishing, the perks of being married to a shoe guru and the most opulent pair of heels she owns. Yes, you will be jealous.
