The bridal market continues to heat up, with more designers adding wedding collections to their offerings. The latest to enter the mix is Paris-based Olga Molbieva Djanguirov, who launched her Olgana collection of highly detailed heels in 2014 and has now added a special White Tie assortment of nuptial-ready styles for spring ’16.
The label is sold at Barneys, Montaigne Market, Dover Street Market, MatchesFashion.com, Level Shoes District in Dubai, Moda Operandi, 4Kuwait and Hirshleifers. Prices range from $680 to $910 at current exchange rates.
“The day of your marriage is the most special of a women’s life,” says Djanguirov. “It has been my dream to beautify [a bride’s] foot with a creation that would be romantic, but most importantly, comfortable — not to suffer on this particular day.”
White options range from whimsical bowed satin stilettos (the La Romantique and the La Delicate) to sleek exotic sandals and pumps such as the L’Amazone and the L’Audacieuse, done in crocodile or python for brides looking for something with a little more bite.
And, the designer explained, versatility is key. “Our creations are shoes that you will not put in a box after the big day, but can always be ready to wear with jeans or pants afterward,” said Djanguirov, also noting the growing trend toward footwear exposure when walking down the aisle. “I’m thinking of those brides who are not just wearing a long dress. I believe that style has changed for the bridal [market]. It has become more fashion-oriented and certainly more modern.” With that in mind, Olgana Paris also offers styles in an au courant blush shade.
The star of the 10-piece collection (and Djanguirov’s favorite pair) is the La Piece Unique heel, which features more than 180 leather flowers on each shoe, making a bouquet redundant.
For her own wedding, the designer shared that she would wear the La Délicate. “It’s so elegant and refined,” she said.
