Shoes. When does our fascination with them—the lustrous laces, those shiny buckles, that ever-straining leather and sleek black heels—stray from the confines of fashion, and drag us, kicking and screaming, into the darkest realms of the freakily fetishistic? “This print deconstructs our fascination with adornments,” says illustrator Robert W Richards. “I’m obsessed with the fetishistic worship of shoes, and the people who think expensive shoes are akin to high art.”
