HKRI Taikoo Hui to host shoe exhibition in Shanghai
Swire Properties is partnering with the Victoria and Albert Museum, London to bring “Shoes: Pleasure and pain” to Asia for the first time.
The critically-acclaimed exhibition explores how shoes can cause both pain as well as pleasure for the wearer and how footwear choices reflect human and societal behavior. Featuring over 140 pairs of shoes from around the world and from as far back as the 1370s, visitors can also admire footwear created by iconic designers or items worn by international celebrities, and dive into the fascinating world of the shoe collector.
This touring V&A exhibition will debut in Shanghai at the newly opened HKRI Taikoo Hui – a joint venture between HKR International and Swire Properties – from September 22 to November 5.
