Before making staple footwear every closet needed, Coliac’s designer Martina Grasselli started off designing statement jewelry pieces. The label’s now gone on to use the same influences to create unique pairs of shoes like its pearl-embellished Derby’s called “Fernanda” and gold-toned loafers. Expect the Italian leather finish on select styles to make Coliac shoes long-lasting favorites, while a vulcanized rubber sole and supple lining all day comfort on its slip-on sneakers.The designer counts Art Deco, Russian Constructivism, and the Bauhaus among her inspirations. If those things aren’t immediately evident in Grasselli’s fabulous, lushly adorned styles, the eclecticism of that list is: trompe l’oeil details, crystals, pearls, or held closed with gold bars where laces would typically go. Pairs come at every level of embellishment, from allover jewels to styles whose charms sing more quietly, like black lace-ups with a simple piercing through the toe. Whichever you choose, you’ll be sure to make a statement.
