So as camelias were on my mind I came across this ad (you guessed it from 1984 - this time Italian Vogue) from Luciano Soprani. Lovely way to wear a flower on the belt. That whole satin suit looks so Lanvin, doesn't it? Anyway, final page of the ad were these sandals. I loved them and then noticed on the bottom it said "Calzature prodotte da Diego Della Valle" (shoes produced by Diego Della Valle - who is of course the owner of Tod's and Hogan). They are gorgeous - if you had bought them in 1984, they'd still be perfect today.
