“I am so excited to launch our footwear collection,” said Monica Botkier. “There is a void in the market for fashion-forward shoes that appeal to our millennial customers. Our loyal followers have been asking me to do shoes for a long time. I am excited to offer them this beautiful and edgy collection.”

The shoes feature the brand’s signature details from their best-selling handbag and jewelry styles. There is a range of contemporary heels, pumps, flats and sandals.

The color palette was inspired by the vivid buildings of Old Town Havana, Cuba. The collection features tropical brights in coral and turquoise mixed with neutrals such as pewter, gold and blush metallics.
