Very Black Ferragamo Shoe

I was drifting through the V&A last week when this shoe (Salvatore Ferragamo, 1935) caught my eye in the same way a black hole might.  And I mean Black; it's like it sucked all the light in and only exists as a beautiful silhouette.  The fact that it was made 75 years ago surprised me too.  To me, it looks like it could have been made yesterday; it's avant garde and it hasn't aged at all.  So gorgeous.
