Natascha spent a number of years working in fashion and travel, both two of her passions, before embarking on an Italian adventure to live in Florence and study at the world renowned Polimoda School of Fashion. Learning the intricate and skilled methods of shoemaking from master craftsmen was a real inspiration and she set about creating her vision - a brand of luxe leather flats; to be more substantial than a ballerina, comfortable and super versatile with a dash of daring. A pair of shoes to make people look. A pair of shoes that women choose to suit their mood in the morning and plan their daily outfits around. Stylish, functional and an everyday luxury.
Our workshop in Portugal spans three generations of artisan shoe crafters and each pair is made lovingly using the finest leathers and materials, being cut and finished by hand. Every part of each shoe is sourced locally in Portugal, supporting the industry and keeping the brand as ethical as possible.
Each of our shoes is named after the three letter airport codes of many a dreamy destination around the world. The subtle hints of each location are apparent to those in the know; from the bar detail of FLO (Florence) reminiscent of the many bridges of the Renaissance city, the contemporary take on the Indian slipper in the form of JAI (Jaipur) to the chic heart detail of french-inspired ANE (Loire Valley) and more recently, the vibrant, daring lace up LAX (Los Angeles) with it’s sparkle, spots and candy stripes.
Signature features of each shoe include a padded leather lining for extra comfort and a henna-inspired leather etched sole as a nod to our designers’ Indian heritage.
