Cinzia Araia


Since it's my day off and all I did was get my windshield repaired and go get cat food in the 38 degree heat, I didn't really know what to blog today because it certainly wasn't going to be my outfit! So I thought I'd feature a shoe designer who is relatively new on the scene, and is relatively new to me. Cinzia Araia is Italian (holla!) and started out by working in her family's shoe business.


Cinzia presented her first collection in 2010. Her footwear is dark, but versatile and absolutely wearable.


No wonder I am a huge fan - her influences are some of my favourite designers including Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester and Rick Owens.

Love the boots with RO vibe. I was checking them out on Antonioli...

Her footwear is VERY RO - which is OK by me as it's a bit less expensive. And she's Italian so I'd be paying respect to my heritage. ;)
