Olivia Palermo and Aquazzura collaborate on new footwear
Hot on her heels
Called Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo, the duo's new capsule collection will feature six different shoe styles created specially for the Florence-based footwear label. The collection is set to launch iin September with 12 global retailers, including Lane Crawford, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tsum and Net-a-porter with an online exclusive.
"Olivia basically has been our unofficial ambassador," said designer Edgardo Osorio. "She's always wearing the shoes. We're friends and we were talking more than a year ago about a small capsule that would be Olivia's eye and aesthetic but with the Aquazzura style."
The styles include over-the-knee boots, bejeweled sandals inspired by a vintage necklace that Palermo owns, gladiator sandals, suede and snake pumps and a suede bootie.
The price range will vary from $600 to $1,625,"Everything is so expensive these days and you still want to have things that you can find and have quality and the design aesthetic and be happy," said Palermo.
