Aquazzura Opens on Madison
If you’re looking for a last minute Mother’s Day activity, I highly suggest a visit to the new Aquazzura store. The luxury Florence based footwear brand founded by Edgardo Osorio best known for its lace up styles and sexy flats has a new chic home on Madison Avenue designed by Ryan Korban.
“My favorite part of the process was working with Edgardo when designing the store. I love the relationship between designer and interior designer and he pushed me to go in another direction that may have been a departure from what I normally do. Aquazzura, in particular has so much excitement and so much sexiness and modernity to it. To create a space for a brand with all these characteristics was an incredible experience.” – Ryan Korban
The store mixes many different patterns and materials such as marble, brass, and suede, that all manage to work together perfectly. The brand’s signature black and white stripes were inspired by the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella in Florence and creates a “Church of Shoes” at 939 Madison Avenue that looks like heaven to me.
If you can’t make it to the store, you can always shop online.
