Kotur launches footwear with full collection for AW14
An accessory brand that has been popular in the Middle East for some time, and recently joined the Symphony label portfolio, Kotur is created by Hong Kong-based designer, Fiona Kotur Marin, who has announced her plan to expand from simply handbags into footwear.
With an Italian production partner based in Hong Kong, she says, "This is the unrealised dream finally coming to fruition."
"Creatively, there is a moment for expressive shoes. Our retailers were asking us to do something, and the slight nudge is what we needed. We also found the right partner to make the shoes with the same commitment to quality." Marin continued.
After a career working as a designer for Tory Burch and Ralph Lauren, Marin stepped out on her own in 2005 with a line of chic minaudières. At a time when "it" bags were flying off the shelves, her small artful clutches developed a reputation for having a unique personality - a trait that most definitely continues in her footwear line.
