Il TACCO, ha detto Christopher Marlowe, è stato inventato da una donna che veniva sempre baciata sulla fronte. Innegabilmente il tacco la solleva, dandole appoggio ed elevazione. Non é solo questione di centimetri, ma anche di una misura considerevole di savoir faire. Un tacco DELMAN è un trompe-l'oeil per eccellenza. Accorcia il piede, allunga il corpo, alleggerisce il portamento, ruba centimetri ai fianchi e dona alla figura una dimensione del tutto nuova. Colei che cammina nella bellezza, cammina con tacchi DELMAN.

The HEEL, said Christopher Marlowe, was invented by a woman who was always being kissed on the forehead. Undeniably, it raises her stature, giving her footing and elevation. This is done not by inches alone, but with a sizable measure of savoir faire. A DELMAN heel is a trompe-l'oeil par excellence. It abbreviates the foot, lengthens the body, lightens the carriage, takes inches off the hips, and gives the costume altogether new dimension. She who walks in beauty, walks in DELMAN heels.

Sebbene di provenienza sconosciuta la citazione é di Christopher Morley, non di Christopher Marlowe.

Although unsourced,  the quote belongs to Christopher Morley, not Christopher Marlowe.
