Collection name: “Cuento Urbano” by Margarita
Inspiration came initially from brides and their weddings. Lately, there has been a strong trend in vintage weddings; of course, shoes are also designed to coordinate that beautiful moment. I’ve always loved vintage and romantic shoes.
This time I wanted to transform romantic vintage into urban vintage; giving shoes the quality of a daily wearable. This implies the evolution of silhouettes into something more casual, maybe more rustic; the use of different materials and textures, from shiny to matte, from soft to apparent roughness; and of course the transformation in color, from pastels to autumnal colors, from delicate to strong. Nonetheless, still feminine.
Keeping vintage, introducing urban. Textures, aesthetics, and colors in urban vintage take us to a place of wooden shades highlighted with one bright color. My bright color will be red; as it is my favorite color, but it is also an empowering color to make us, women, stand out.
