Shoes and accessories, 1954

To improve wearer comfort and hygiene, especially in the hot months, the Institute of Industrial Design (IWP) promoted new shoe design techniques. Brogues, sandals and flip-flops, made using lightweight fabrics and thin leather, were to replace the customary all-year non-breathable pigskin pumps. The catalogue in which Chrząszczowa’s photographs were featured opens with an introductory text explaining the basics of shoe design.
