This is the new campaign to promote the Portuguese shoe industry. The campaign is composed of 12 pictures under the slogan “Portuguese shoes - the sexiest industry in Europe”. All the shoes featured are designed and produced in Portugal. The campaign is an initiative of APICCAPS the Portuguese Shoe Industry Association.
Shoelosophy notes: It is not often that I am so intrigued by the shoe selection of a single editorial, as I am with the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. The shoes are magnificent, to say the least. I have managed to identify the various brands for my shoelosophy friends.
P.S Thanks to all who helped in the process.

Gianmarco Lorenzi always shoots its campaigns with style and glamour. Preview, in my opinion, is the obvious choice for this Italian shoe giant to showcase their range in South…Continue

The times that this happens, one is just happy to be in the arms of another at the end of the tanda.
