Roberta Einer, a rising star of London Fashion Week, came across Aeyde on Instagram and instantly fell for the Berlin-based shoe label’s clean shapes and off-key vibes.
“I like how the angle at the front of the stiletto is off-center; it’s such a small thing but I’m really geeky about details,” she said.
Einer took Aeyde’s classic Nina pump and Nola bootie and embellished them in Swarovski crystal with moth and dragonfly motifs to match hand-painted prints in the ready-to-wear collection presented on Friday. She was inspired by Portuguese Art Deco travel posters from the ’40s and ’50s.
“This is our first collaboration,” said Aeyde co-founder Luisa Krogmann. “The contrast with the embroidery and our silhouettes made for a really nice effect.”
The next collection from the online-only label will focus on silks and drops at the end of March.
