Following the big retrospective ‘Image Maker’ being held at Somerset House since November (you have time till March 15), “Walking Legs” (free entrance at Michael Hoppen Gallery) is one of Guy Bordin’s most irreverent campaign for Charles Jourdan shoes collection. The exhibition also features several images from the campaign that had never been shown till now.

// Sulla scia della grande retrospettiva “Image Maker” (creatore di immagini) inaugurata a Novembre alla Somerset House (avete tempo fino al 15 Marzo), “Walking Legs” (gratuita alla Michael Hoppen Gallery) rappresenta una delle campagne più irriverenti scattate da Guy Bourdin per le collezioni di scarpe ideate da Charles Jourdan. La mostra include anche immagini di campagna che non erano mai stati pubblicate fino ad ora.

Dated back to 1979, ‘Walking legs’ portrays classic English landscapes (that still look the same today) as a background for a pair of half mannequin legs, walking in Charles Jourdan’s creations.

// Scattata nel 1979, “Walking legs” ritrae tipici paesaggi inglesi (riconoscibili ancora oggi), sfondo per un paio di gambe di manichino che vagano indossando le creazioni di Charles Jourdan.
