Designer Profile – Rene Caovilla

Rene Caovilla SS14
By Roxanne  /  April 14, 2014

Italian shoe brand, Rene Caovilla, was founded at the beginning of the twentieth century. With a long history of creating luxury footwear and working with the most creative and inspiring individuals, including Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Dior, the brand combine history and expertise with modern trends. A family business now in its third generation, Rene Caovilla has a strong presence in the fashion capitals of the world including London, Paris and in Milan, with their recent store opening in the Rinascente department store. With further stores lined up in Dubai, Moscow and Beijing, Rene Caovilla is expanding globally.

Their Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is inspired by Art Museum, The Peggy Guggenheim Collection. This new line is a feast of embellishment, colour and Italian style, with the intricate detailing. There are lots of statement pieces that make great red carpet shoes spotted on the likes of Taylor Swift and Heidi Klum. We like that there is also a wide range of flats and espadrilles that are great for summer.
