Children constantly amaze us: their boundless curiosity, imagination and original logical conclusions. This immediacy doesn’t stop at taboos. People don’t talk much about death, but children know about it. Everyone can die. Even their parents. Even they themselves.

High heels, platform soles, sandals, flip flops, strappy pumps, ankle boots: magnificent pairs for specific moods and situations. And colour plays a role, too.
