What is it about shoes and bags? What makes women go completely nuts over a Motorcyle bag or uber high heels from Balenciaga? With the first Miss Louise opening in 1964, Melbourne women have been flocking to Miss Louise to get their fashion fix for over 50 years.
With a stock list that reads like Kate Moss’s black book, these designers are the very best at their job. The aforementioned master couturier Balenciaga is here, Marc Jacobs, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, YSL, Christian Dior, Sergio Rossi, Giuseppe Zanotti, Bottega Veneta and Alexander McQueen. Stop me when you’ve had enough. Nope, keep going? Okay. I’m out of breath, but if you want footwear as sculpture, bags as art and only the very best take a seat at Miss Louise and get stupidly and completely irrational about your essentials. Ok, just a few more. Valentino, Azzedine Alaia, Balmain, Brian Atwood and Chloe. Enough already, you’ll need your energy.
