After several years of experience as a designer and interior architect, in 2017 Alessandra Balbi decided to launch her own luxury footwear brand and channel her multifaceted background into a single product, the most feminine and authentic part of herself. Her artistic and architectural references shape the style of the collection and give her creations an intrinsic and timeless value that extends far beyond the products themselves. The brand is handmade in Italy by artisans from the Riviera del Brenta, in the Veneto region. Inspiration comes from exquisite artistic and architectural references that shape the collections and give the creations an intrinsic and timeless value that extends far beyond the products themselves.
The leitmotif of this collection is bringing together traditional shapes and contemporary colours with the main aim of producing a precious and timeless accessory. The collection was inspired by Optical Art, with a focus on the work of Argentinian artist Julio Le Parc, who attempts to distort the senses with his artwork. The collection references his multicolour juxtaposed bands and his curves. The study of art and architecture and the special attention to proportions, colours, and textures are all tangible aspects of Alessandra Balbi’s creations.
