René Caovilla Shoes 2012 Featured

Fashion Review of the must-have footwear from the Venetian shoe label
by 24 September 2011

Vertiginous heels adorned with precious stones and crystals, René Caovilla slingbacks, sandals and heels are red carpet favourites which have taken the art of shoe craftsmanship to an entirely new level of luxe. The theme for next spring/summer is flirtaciously seductive with designs that use lace, butterflies, crystals and other feminine accents to really play up the charm and drama of the collection. Boudoir, Venetian Carnevale, the seaside in Capri and Hollywood glamazons are some of the stories behind this season’s inspirations, while a clever use of intertwining straps flatter the foot and slim the leg.

We decided straight away that these beauties cannot simply be classified as shoes, but as unique works of art which will have those in your company stealing glances at your feet the entire evening!

René Caovilla was founded in Venice so it is only natural that a design would pay homage to one of the exports the floating city is best known for: Murano glass. The Murano sandal from Rene Caovilla is made entirely by hand with multi-coloured glass pieces. Another Venetian theme we spotted was the use of lace to cover and yet reveal the foot in an elegant manner.
