Italian heritage and American flair merge together in a harmonious collaboration between direct-to-consumer footwear brand Scarosso and New York-based designer Brian Atwood.
The collaboration that launched on November 12th stems from Atwood’s enduring love and connection to Milan, and of course, shoes. The partnership also marks Scarosso’s first time stepping into the heel category, and naturally, Atwood’s eponymous label makes perfect sense for that first step. The designers sought after glamour and oh-so-chic heels have garnered a loyal following of A-listers from Olivia Palermo, Lisa Rinna, Megan Thee Stallion, and many more.
Getting into the shoes themselves, the collection comes together with five silhouettes, loaded with courage, pride, and elegance, designed for women who want to strike and lead the way. The range includes a style for everyone with pumps, slingbacks, penny-heeled, over-the-knees, platforms, and ankle boots in statement-making bod colors, as well as classic minimal hues.
“My collaboration with Scarosso was a perfect fit since they are a great Italian shoe manufacturer, and my work has a long history of Italian design. mentions Atwood in a statement shared with GRAZIA. “They asked me to develop a collection of high heels and boots, category that has never been offered by the shoe brand before. I wanted to create classic styles that should be a staple of every woman’s wardrobe with rich fabrications and an eye for simple, impactful design. I believe we have hit a “home run,” which will be a great opportunity for Scarosso to enter into the heels market with a WOW factor!!!”
It’s not the first time the two shoe mavens have come together. Just last year, Scarosso and Atwood collaborated on a capsule collection of velvet slippers for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. The latest collection is now available to shop at scarosso.com and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity.
