No one does eccentric exoticism better than India. The unashamedly bright colors, the heavy gold detailing, and the rich heritage have long served as fashion inspiration. And it’s no coincidence that just as you were thinking about updating your fall wardrobe, Level Shoes knocked it straight out of the park with its new collaboration. Cue: the ‘Dear India’ collection.
For Fall/Winter 2017, the shoe haven is revealing the romance, magic, and culture of the country through an exclusive footwear collaboration. A total of 16 renowned designers have gathered from around the globe to contribute to this luxe love letter to India, merging their signature design styles with vivid colors and intricate details. The result is a truly stunning collection that is exclusive to the region.
Among the curated list of designers sits Creative Director Giuseppe Zanotti, who has designed three styles for the ‘Dear India’ collection. “As a designer, India – with its dynamic colors, rich traditions, and decorative culture – offered incredible creative fodder,” says Zanotti. “I wanted to bring that vibrancy to a sophisticated, modern silhouette.” And indeed he has, as proven by the black suede, handmade tassels, and golden studs used to decorate his signature sky-high heels.
Four of India’s most talented designers have also contributed to the collection, creating styles that speak to both the Indian and Middle Eastern aesthetic. Sitting amongst these are labels The Sole Sisters and Rohan Arora, both of which are renowned for adding modern touches such as bright colorways and embellished details to traditional silhouettes.
