This pair of MULO shoes features iconic fashion photographer Norman Parkinson’s ‘After Van Dongen’. It is part of a limited edition collection in partnership with the Norman Parkinson Archive.
‘After Van Dongen’ featuring Adele Collins was inspired by the 1919 painting ‘The Corn Poppy’ by Dutch artist Kees Van Dongen. The image first appeared in a 1959 edition of British Vogue (with eyes looking towards the camera), and is currently in the ‘Vogue 100: A Century of Style’ exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG), London. A second version (with eyes looking away) was selected for Parkinson’s 1981 retrospective exhibition at the NPG.
Both photographs are featured on the shoes. Printed on leather, we worked with the finest printers in London to replicate the images with the utmost integrity.
