1950 - 1952 | BEAU A LA MODE [BOWS] | ANDRE PERUGIA FOR CHRISTIAN DIOR

"Dior has a lovely Perugia pump in suede or kid with an almost imperceptible string-like bow of the leather at the front. In satin, with a slightly wider bow, it is lovely for dressier occasions – very young and distinguished."  
[The Milwaukee Sentinel - Sept, 1 1950]

Perugia’s Beau à la Mode, an all occasion shoe, which caused a sensation in Paris when Dior models wore them with everything from afternoon frocks to party outfits, are already being copied in suede and a new type of mesh (…) Made with soft toes and draped grosgrain bows across the vamp, these shoes may be had with high or medium heels.”
