René Caovilla celebrates nature’s power and extraordinary beauty with its Spring/Summer 2018 collection
Vibrant colors, special textures and sophisticated details convey to define an aesthetic, which is joyful yet sophisticated, contemporary yet timeless. Classic models and silhouettes are juxtaposed to new styles designed for women who want to face the challenges of the everyday life with the signature elegance of the brand.
Inspired by a charming tropical atmosphere, René Caovilla combines silk satin worked in bright shades of yellow and red with precious wood details, exalting the upscale artisanal craftsmanship of the brand’s shoes, all manufactured in the Fiesso D’Artico’s factory, located in the heart of the famous Riviera del Brenta. The tribal mood infused in the wooded details, which are punctuated by microcrystals, injects an exotic feel into the urban flats and heeled sandals of the “Ethnic Wood” collection, which stands out with its signature maxi wooden circular buckles.
Shining and colorful as the snakes hidden in the African forest, the sandals of the “Tanzania” line are crafted using a special technique mixing crystals of three different colors to create sparkling patterns with a graphic appeal. René Caovilla’s iconic sinuous snake pops up on a flat and on a sensual sandal featuring the brand’s patented Snake ankle strap.
Pearls, precious gifts from the sea, not only decorate the flats showing gros grain ribbons to wrap around the ankle, but are also the protagonists of the “Conchiglia” new collection. Mixed with crystals and tiny fringes, they enhance the shiny effect of sandals and flats enriched with silver crystals.
Elegant pave settings of micro studs create sophisticated geometric motifs on the slingbacks and the pumps included in the “Puntalino Strass” e “Flash” collections, where the exclusive graphic inserts inject a new, dynamic twist into classic silhouettes. Their sleek look creates a charming contrast with the delicate and soft “Foulard” sandals, embellished with chiffon ribbons to wrap around the legs, and with the creative eccentricity of the “Venezia” e “Tormalina” ranges. Showing a refined combination of high-end materials, including the lace of the slingback styles, presented in a new dynamic, daily version, and the soft leather of the sneakers and the young and fun mules, these creations celebrate René Caovilla’s most authentic Baroque-inspired aesthetic.
Signature elements of the Venetian brand, the bows, covered with microcrystals, enhance the quintessential femininity of flats, sandals and pumps showing a sharp, essential design for the SS18 collection.
