Agent Provocateur Supports the V&A Shoes: Pleasure & Pain exhibition

Agent Provocateur is proud to support Shoes: Pleasure & Pain, a major exhibition at the V&A from 13 June 2015 – 31 January 2016.

This exhibition will look at the extremes of footwear from around the globe, presenting around 200 pairs of shoes ranging from a sandal decorated in pure gold leaf originating from ancient Egypt to the most elaborate designs by contemporary makers, including our very own original Pom Pom mules.

It will consider the cultural significance and transformative capacity of shoes and will examine the latest developments in footwear technology creating the possibility of ever higher heels and dramatic shapes. Examples from famous shoe wearers and collectors will also be shown alongside a dazzling range of historic shoes, many of which have not been displayed before.
