Roberto Botticelli - haute heels for fall/winter 2013-2014

Hand-finished footwear that yearns to be seen
by 19 February 2013

Roberto Botticelli's heels are always the epitome of class, and for the next winter season, it's definitely high class. Luxe leather combines with bright colours and super-high heels to create a look that will never go unnoticed. In addition, for the first time the brand is launching a limited edition for both men and women, with a series of models entirely made and tinted by hand. Each piece becomes unique, with the brushstrokes of colour applied by master craftsmen working in the company headquarters in the Marche region of Italy.

The women's collection features high heels, exceeding 12-14 cm, with colours that include bright orange as well as natural leather, white, and the various leather textures for which the brand is famous. Styles are reinterpretations of Roberto Botticelli's classic designs: heels, wedges, platforms, boots, open toe, biker boots, trekking boots and more. Detailing is superb: lace, openwork, embroidery, liquid gilding, lurex, crystal and diamond powder, all designed to light up the night with every step she takes.

The men's shoes for fall/winter 2013-2014 are classic in forms but lusciously imaginative in colour and materials, featuring green, bordeaux and grey, in luxury leathers and skins. Each piece is rendered unique by the hand-crafted workmanship. Streetwise models include boots and biker-boots with Vibram-type soles and high-tech rubber, while the lighter footwear includes details such as laser cutting, intertwined materials, glittering embroidery, iridescent yarns and velvet, on bases consisting of python and crocodile.

Just as in the women's collection, there is a return to classicism in the men's range as well, though with creative colour and detailing. As the designer said, "We have selected the most interesting forms from the past, and we are presenting them in more contemporary and daring combinations, using innovative techniques."
