1967 | THE PAPER SHOE | KATHRYN STOLL PAIGE FOR HERBERT LEVINE

THE PAPER TWIST SHOE:

This new at-home fantasy is done in a huge palette of bright coloured, double-faced laminated paper strips twisted into exquisite swirls and multicolour bands which fled above the light composition soles. The Levine light touch creates a new whimsy in at-home fashions.

Year and magazine unknown | It’s Paper Jewelry by Kathryn Stoll Paige

It's instant... it's easy... it's paper jewelry. 
And it's yours for the making. Glazed gift-wraps in flash-bright colors, plus rubber cement, are the low-cost basic. Add double-face cellophane tape for sticking power, and you're all set for your paperwork. Designer Kathryn Stoll came up with these crisp twists. She likes her party curls (left) the most because they're both flattering and fun (and hit-of-the-party insurance as well). 
Year and magazine unknown

NY designer Kathryn Stoll was so well connected that she managed to convince Harper’s Bazaar’s then editor Gloria Moncur to propose the Levines her ideas; these days? try to find something more about her.

Her paper jewelry contains already both materials and color palette later seen in the paper shoes. Most probably, the article was published before July 1967, otherwise the paper shoes would have been mentioned.
