Edgardo Osorio Reveals His Fall ’15 Inspiration

Welcome to the Hotel California. For fall, Edgardo Osorio turned to the spirit of 1970s Los Angeles for his Aquazzura line. “A vintage guitar strap found in Venice Beach set the mood for the collection,” said the designer. For the look, think platforms (a first for the brand) with suede and lacing around the ankle — plus flat, mid- and high-heeled boots and sandals with chunky heels. Each style still has the Aquazzura touch, with “fringe, leather and stud applications, and feather details in boots,” Osorio said. “We mixed in other luxurious materials, like mink, feathers, lace and satin for evening styles.” The ’70s spark led to a larger variety, too. “This collection is much broader in categories and styles,” he added. “As our brand grows, we want to make sure we offer the Aquazzura woman something to wear for any time of the day.”

“Rock bands like The Eagles and singers like Joni Mitchell inspired the boho boots and shoes, but [they’re] interpreted in a modern, sexy and sophisticated way”
