As Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw said, “When one door closes, a shoe box opens.” And this season, luxury footwear brand Aquazzura and Lebanese designer Racil Chalhoub want to take you on an instant summer holiday when you open that box.
Edgardo Osorio, the creator of Florence-based Aquazzura, and Chalhoub are firm friends who embark on happy summer adventures in the sun together, which compelled them to create this long-desired collaboration.
As well as five pairs of beautiful and comfortable shoes, the special high summer collection includes seven looks. Inspired by the 90s, their love for summer and head to toe prints, the pieces have a feminine and modern Dolce Vita vibe.
Whether you want to pack them for that well-earned summer holiday or just want to live vicariously, the pieces that combine stripes, polka dots and a magnificent vintage florals, can be mixed and matched and worn from day to night. Fresh, easy and contemporary, they can be dressed up or down, worn from beach to party with just the change of a shoe.
"Edgardo is a very dear friend of mine and one of the most talented designers I know," Chalhoub, who has a namesake London-based brand renowned for focusing on women’s tuxedos, said.
"This collaboration really reflects the spirit of our friendship. A fresh take on summer dressing, it brings our worlds together and our idea of a perfect wardrobe: fun but chic looks with the shoes to match! Perfect for when you want to leave your Tux jacket at home!" she continued.
The collection is exclusively available at Aquazzura’s Dubai Mall boutique and the ready-to-wear collection can be found on MatchesFashion.com.
