This is the second time BDMOTP has visited with Brazilian designer Diego Vanassibara and seen his fabulous shoe collections. Diego´s collection during the January London Collections: Men for FW 2013 was truly exquisite and we absolute couldn´t wait to see what Diego would come up with this season.
As predicted, we were not disappointed. For SS14, Diego has introduced a new color palette that includes a light blue, a beige and a grey, and an army green color in addition to the more basic tones of black and brown. There is nothing basic about these shoes, however, they are original and funky and fun while still being classic and elegant.
Not to mention Diego and his team are passionate about the shoes. As I watched Diego explain his vision behind the designs, I could truly see he loves designing and creating and his passion shows in the craftmanship of the shoes themselves. The shoes, in addition to having Diego´s signature wood panels, have some movement in the design so your foot can move and breathe along with the shoe. The color scheme was inspired by the idea of travelling to Rio de Janiero, Brasil, this of course being the blue and beige of the sea and sand. Then a classy navy blue and grey for the next destination of Singapore and a more intense black to represent one final trip to Tokyo.
Finally, BDMOTP wanted to know if there was a female shoe line in the worlds. He noted it´s not out of the question for the future to have a separate line for women. However, for now, females around the world can rejoice because he now makes his men´s shoes as small as a men´s US size 5 so women can wear them! In future lines he will even start from a men´s size 3 so women with tiny feet can wear his strong, independent, masculine shoes.
