New Historical Shoes Coming Soon from American Duchess
May 20, 2013
As I dig out from under the *piles* of boxes, here are some new shoes to entice you…
“Tissot” 1860-1880 – great for Civil War, Natural Form, and Bustle Eras. This is a dyeable satin pump made directly from an original. Easily dyeable and customizable with the new fabric dye kits we’re putting together (coming soon). “Tissot” is coming up for pre-order in June, 2013
The new “Pompadour” in ivory damask, with an ivory leather heel, leather sole, and characteristic white rand. We’ll be doing a “re-pre-order” for “Pompadour” this summer, 2013
“Claremont” 1930s suede oxfords in black or chocolate brown, with matching patent leather detailing, and leather soles. These are great for historical wear, as well as modern stylings – they’ll be snazz for Fall, so we’ll be doing a pre-order for “Claremont” in July, 2013
“Abigail” Regency Slippers, the first of our “Signature Collection,” of famous women’s shoes. Designed from Abigail Adams’ slippers in the Smithsonian, these all-leather beauties are historically accurate for 1790-1815, but also happen to look awesome with jeans.
Don’t worry, patient ladies, I’m still working on Regency boots, 18th century mules, Elizabethan shoes, new buckles, spats, and stockings, and other delicious things. 🙂
