Anyone who’s a regular on Net-A-Porter would know that Aquazurra and Johanna Ortiz are hot properties on the site. The former, helmed by Edgardo Osorio, is a shoe brand that is a pro at hard-edged slinky styles, which are also big on comfort.
The latter, the namesake label of the designer who is well-known for her sumptuous ruffled pieces, is a must-have in any folk-inspired wardrobe. What ties their work together: that vibrant Latina flair which gives everyday getup more pizzazz. Oh, and the fact that they are Colombian natives.
Come April 19, there’d be another common denominator to their work: The duo will launch a four-piece capsule collection of flats and stiletto sandals in the the colourways of navy and gold. The pieces feature an update on two of Aquazzura’s popular styles — Wild Thing and Tangier — and are also meant to complement Ortiz’s safari-tinged Spring/Summer ’17 collection.
The result? Silk tassels on the shoes which give more sophistication, movement, and volume. That also means you get more drama the next time you hit the dance floor. US$584– US$784 (S$815-S$1,090).
