The Celebrity Shoe
And why you should get it

Wednesday, February 11, 2015
We have 5 artisanal shoemakers – Rupert Sanderson, Gianvito Rossi, Aquazzura, Bionda Castana, and O Jour – to choose from and why you should definitely get your hands on one!

At Rupert Sanderson, British heritage and traditional craftsmanship come first. The result is a distinctive shoe silhouette of balanced curves with a fine attention to details and textures.

Instantly recognisable by the iconic gold-coloured mark in the shape of a daffodil on the sole, a Rupert Sanderson shoe is ultimately made to flatter.  Think of it as a perfect line of design and fit coexisting together. And with these shoes spotted on the likes of Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow, we think that Rupert Sanderson is a British legacy in the making.

“A shoe is like the frame of a beautiful painting, in which the main subject is the woman.” 

A Gianvito Rossi shoe is all about the modern woman – and she is special. A quiet aura of feminine elegance and contemporary grace exudes from within. It is like an unspoken language, a novel indulgence, and at the same time, embracing a sophisticated Italian glamour. Just take a look at these celebrities and you get the idea. Gianvito Rossi is not to be missed – for a new sensuality awaits you.

Aquazzura’s story is a wondrous one. It all started with the Sexy Thing bootie. Dubbed “the Fashion Week shoe” by the press, we say this is a must-have for any discerning fashion-forward woman worth her it bag. The brand has since been snagged by more than 140 retailers in 45 countries and even collaborated with style maestro Olivia Palermo.

Such is the popularity of the brand that the Aquazzura website even has a page devoted entirely to the girls of Aquazzura in their favourite pair of showstoppers. Are you one of them? We definitely are.

Blonde or brunette? The perennial question beckons. You see, Bionda means blonde, and Castana means brunette. With BiondaCastana, you can expect both, well, metaphorically.

As the playful name suggests, cool and vibrant sixties shoe styles sit alongside signature classics like the versatile Lana heel, which has now become an iconic sight comparable to the sightings of a red sole. What blends these styles seamlessly together is actually mesh, which makes a Bionda Castana shoe ultra comfortable and breathable. And that is one cool factor to add to your wardrobe – literally.

Jour means daytime in French and it’s a daytime party with O Jour. The “O” stands for perfection, a circle of perfection that is enwrapped in oval shaped boxes of delightful O Jour heels.

The freshness of O Jour comes from its whimsical designs in tasteful proportions. The distinctive O Jour heel is a mid-length one, a celebrated height in the O Jour repertoire. Combine these two, and you get a fun and feminine heel that can be worn every day at every age. Just ask Taylor Swift.
