When we first designed Gabriella we weren’t sure whether the flower would be too much. We love oversized flowers, but then we’re shoe designers so do tend to be a bit over the top on occasion! It was just such a beautiful thing, we didn’t want to make it any smaller as it needs to make a statement. As it turns out, we needed have worried- it seems that you love Gabriella just as much! The leather petals and leaves are all cut using specially developed knives to give the lovely scalloped edging, before being skilfully combined by hand to make each individual flower. What also makes the flowers so stunning is the mix of different colours- the leaves are metallic gold leather, with pearlised ivory and gold petals. In the centre is a gorgeous little bud of petals, giving the shoe a beautifully structured yet romantic look.
Such a stunning trim doesn’t need much more, so we kept the design of the actual shoe beautifully understated. The main shoe is made from pearlised ivory leather, and has a metallic gold leather t-bar which is echoed by the vintage-inspired scalloped detail on the side of the heel. It’s a really comfortable shoe, and the t-bar makes it feel really secure too. We like to keep our peep toes just that- showing only a peep of the toe, which not only gives the shoe a subtle vintage feel, but is also much more flattering than a larger open toe. It also means you can wear them whatever the season!
To finish the look pair with gorgeous Georgia.
Gabriella is fairly true to size, so we recommend ordering your usual size.
