Shoes-jewel designed by five jewelry designers for Aquazzura: a strange experiment ♦ ︎
Gioiellis.com is a vertical site: it writes, that is, about only one topic, the jewels. For once, however, we make an exception, but only partially. Because we talk about Sabine Getty, Noor Fares, Eugenie Niarchos, Anissa Kermiche and Ana Khouri: all jewelry designers, all young, cute and full of creativity. All, however, were called to express their imagination with another type of accessory: shoes.
For Net-a-porter Edgardo Osorio asked the designers to design a pair of shoes for the Aquazzura brand.
In some cases, as was reasonable to expect, they are shoes that do not forget the main activity of the designer, that of jewelry. In other cases it is less experimental and more traditional shoes. The form, in short, also reflects the style that designers express with their jewels. For example, the Memphis Wave motif of Sabine Getty, which was made of crystals, with the perspex strap. Noor Fares, instead, preferred to focus on a special heel, covered with a pavé. But perhaps the shoe that is most noticeable is that of Anissa Kermiche with a heel made up of three gold and pearl hoops. Price: $ 1,152. Giulia Netrese
