These black patent leather peep toe mules are by the designer Yves Saint Laurent. circa 2005. They were donated earlier this year along with other designer examples.
YSL is a luxury fashion house founded by the designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge in 1961. Today the company markets a broad range of women and men’s ready-to-wear products, including leather goods, jewellery and of course shoes.
The mules show details that date back to the designs of the 1940s and 50s. They sport a low platform sole and open toe with a retro style bow detail, which were often seen on women’s shoes of the 1940s.
