Spring Preview: Rene Caovilla

René Caovilla looked to exotic gardens and seaside scenes to inspire the spring ’13 collection for his eponymous luxury women’s label. Bali, Maui and New Delhi were among the designer’s geographical muses, and the open-toe heels, wedges and flats reflect the lush theme with embellishments of pearls, beadwork, jeweled snakes, vibrant-hued Swarovski crystals and raffia, all with the brand’s signature glitter soles. The 12-year-old label, which retails for $545 to $1,595, is available at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Lane Crawford and Harvey Nichols, as well as specialty boutiques in the U.S. and several other countries.
