JW Anderson- FOOTWEAR
Northern Irish designer Jonathan Anderson established JW Anderson in 2008. Its unique design aesthetic offers a modern interpretation of masculinity and femininity by creating thought-provoking silhouettes through a conscious cross-pollination between menswear and womenswear elements.
This idiosyncratic perspective, which earned the label a cult following, prompted JW Anderson to present a women’s capsule collection in 2010. JW Anderson hassince evolved into an internationally-renowned and award-winning brand sold around the world.
PROENZA SCHOULER - FOOTWEAR
Proenza Schouler is a New York based womenswear and accessories brand founded in 2002 by designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. The duo met while studying at Parsons School of Design eventually collaborating on their senior thesis, which became their first collection as Proenza Schouler.
Named after the designers’ mothers’ maiden names, Proenza Schouler is defined by its fusion of craftsmanship and attention to detail with a sense of refined ease. Inspiration drawn from contemporary art and youth culture is combined with an emphasis on tailoring and the use of custom developed fabrics.
PLAN C - FOOTWEAR
Plan C is designed by Carolina Castiglioni. Born in Lugano, Carolina grew up in an eclectic environment, where, inspired by her mother, the founder of Italian fashion label Marni, she developed a very distinctive aesthetic vision, along with a passion for beautifully crafted and meaningful things.
In 2018, together with her father Gianni Castiglioni and her brother Giovanni, she founded PLAN C.
Carolina’s commitment is to make individual and modern collections, matching masculine and feminine elements, playing with striking colors and bold prints, as well as crafted from special materials with a charming tactile feel.
BROCK COLLECTION - RTW & FOOTWEAR
Brock Collection is a women’s luxury ready-to-wear label founded by Laura Vassar Brock and Kristopher Brock in 2014. The Los Angeles-based house was established out of a shared aesthetic intellect between the two designers—one that draws equally from a sun-kissed, natural élan and a sophisticated, down-to-earth composite of beauty.
The result is that Brock Collection occupies a rarefied space of lived-in romance and thoughtful whimsy; it connects the dazzling (and not always easy to traverse) threads between uptown polish and boardwalk ease. And, as the line has grown, its hallmarks have remained: a combined sense of opulence and purpose, a focus on craft and cut, and a resultant signature of distinct yet universally lovely charm.
FEDERICO CURRADI - RTW
A sought-after menswear designer, Federico Curradi founded his eponymous label in his hometown of Florence. Natural materials and artisanal techniques are summoned to create collections defined by soft textures and fluid lines that evoke a softer side of masculinity.
MARIA LUCA - FOOTWEAR & BAGS
The image of a contemporary woman materialising in a new made-in-Italy footwear and accessories brand. Roman designer Carlotta De Luca is the one who gave life to this brand, whose creative approach results today in a new brand dedicated to strong, independent, nonchalant women. Women who, first of all, are able to take risks.
A contemporary image enshrined in a key concept: put your left foot forward. Because as the designer explains, “In life you have to take risks. And it is only when you risk that the best things happen”.
Behind this new brand is the combination of an elegant and dynamic view of the feminine world represented by the name Maria, just like Carlotta’s grandmother and like all the women in her family. An evocative name that the designer matched to that part of her surname embodying the masculine energy. A harmonious synergy enshrined in her brand.
Fall Winter 2020/21 will mark the debut of the brand, accompanied by two capsule collections dedicated to bags and jewellery. To tell about the versatile and recognisable world of Maria Luca in its various forms
See by Chloé - FOOTWEAR
Launched in 2001 as the younger sister to Chloé, See By Chloé proposes a youthful, accessible interpretation of the Parisian maison. Romantic in spirit yet effortless in attitude, the wardrobe stands out for its fluid silhouettes and playful flourishes. In a shifting palette of earth tones and pops of colour, the collections speak to free-spirited girls who take a creative approach to their style.
ROCHAS - RTW & FOOTWEAR
Rochas Paris is an historical French Couture and perfume house that seeks to bring poetry and sophistication to the daily modern life.
Under the creative direction of Alessandro Dell’Acqua since 2013, Rochas offers a theatrical and poetic vision of a woman’s wardrobe, that draws inspiration from the Couture legacy of its House. Each collection flaunts elaborate details, bold colours, precious fabrics and complementary jewellery-inspired accessories.
The chic and striking designs match the grandiose and exciting lifestyle of the Rochas woman: spontaneous, cosmopolitan, gravitating towards creative scenes, and endlessly striving for elegance.
FRANCESCO RUSSO - FOOTWEAR
An inventive cobbler with a taste for tradition, Francesco Russo traces his passion for ultra-feminine shoes back to childhood. “I was looking at my mother and my sisters getting dressed – he recalls – as soon as they wore heels, they immediately turned into magnificent creatures”.
After 20 years designing for Brands including Costume National, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Sergio Rossi and Dior, following an idea of shoes as both architectural object and seduction tools, in September 2013 Russo went solo, launching his eponymous label.
He chose an unorthodox angle and focused on just a few timeless shapes. By opting for creative rhythms which are more in sync with true invention, Russo now skips the idea of the collection, as well as that of the succession of seasons, to create objects that celebrate beauty. He made his atelier at n.8 rue de Valois the centre of his idea of extreme luxury that for Francesco is the total attention to the client’s desires.
This extraordinary attention to the feminine personal universe is perfectly embodied in the two main services provided in the atelier: Made To Order (the unique opportunity to order custom version – including materials and colours – of each shoe Francesco designed) and the Patina (an hand dyeing process for the shoe, that from unfinished crust leather allow the customer to choose within different colours).
ELIE SAAB - RTW
