The sheeny, five-piece lineup draws inspiration from Austrian symbolist artist Gustav Klimt’s renowned painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer,” also known as “The Lady in Gold.”
The collection has translated the unique, gold detailing of the artwork into two-toned Jacquard patterns and gold velvet. Styles include Aquazzura’s high-heeled, embroidered Sinatra sandals and booties, embellished with fur trimmings; the block mid-heeled Brooklyn ankle boots and the brand’s latest Powder Puff slingback pumps and flat slippers, offered in gold velvet.
The capsule will launch Nov. 22 exclusively on Mytheresa.com, with prices ranging from about $585 for the Powder Puff slippers to 1,135 euros (about $1,332) for the Sinatra boots.
To celebrate the partnership, the duo hosted a lavish, gold-themed dinner party on Saturday at the Liechtenstein Palace in Vienna.
Aquazzura co-founders Edgardo Osorio and Ricardo D’Almeida Figueiredo and Mytheresa.com’s president, Michael Kliger, welcomed a diverse range of guests, including model Arizona Muse, Nieves Alvarez, Cosima Auermann and Helena Severin; designers Fiona Swarovski and Sara Battaglia; stylists Rebecca Corbin Murray and Pernille Teisbaek; influencers Caroline Daur and Evangelie Smyrniotaki and photographer Micol Sabbadini.
