Discovering new designers is like finding a new flavour of icecream or Pringles. A new shoe label I came across whilst in Paris and am coveting right now is Nicole Brundage. Texan-born Brundage graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Fine Arts and Art History. She studied fashion design at Milan and was an intern at Giorgio Armani. She collaborated with Manalo Blahnik whilst working for Zac Posen in NY. In 2006 she launched her own luxury women’s shoe-wear. She has since collaborated with major Italian fashion houses such as Furla, Salvatore Ferragamo and Max Mara. An impressive CV, I’d say.
Her beautiful sleek designs are a testimony to her solid academic background and experienced craftswomanship.
I was really drawn to her simple, sturdy and solid designs.
Sleek and tall, just the way women like to feel in Nicole Brundage’s shoes.
She has recently launched a new line of shoes which I was lucky enough to have viewed in Paris: ACROBATS OF GOD. They were made mainly from elastic bands that conformed to the natural contour of our feet. Beautiful and sensuous.
Tell me what you think of them…
Definitely one to watch, and a pair to wear.
