Aquazzura sexy python lace ups
For the longest time I vowed not to wear any shoes with heels higher than three and a half inches. I changed my mind very quickly when I discovered the sexy lines of Aquazzura.
Aquazzura is cobbler du jour with fashion editors (the must-have style is the Sexy Thing Cut Out booties) and it’s easy to see why. Based in Florence, the brand was founded in 2011 by Colombian designer and Central Saint Martin’s graduate Edgardo Osorio. Osorio has designed shoes for various luxury brands including Salvatore Ferragamo, Sigerson Morrison, René Caovilla and most recently Roberto Cavalli, before he decided to branch out on his own.

Aquazzura is unique in that the designs are deceptively simple – there are no fancy embellishments or in-your-face details. Instead it’s all about powerful, sexy silhouettes that are modern and edgy. So rather than make a statement with bold colours and prints, Osario will deliver a pump (the Belgravia) with a perfectly pointed toe accented with sexy laces. Much like Alaia’s shoes, they are glamorous with a hint of sexiness. The result is a look that is timeless, contemporary and above all, desirable.
Watch out Manolo, you may have some competition heading your way…
